Exploring Sets


We all have a group of some objects, a collection of our favorite things, a set of books, a list of cities and countries in our life. These are all sets, and we come to their usage in daily life.In this web quest, you are going to learn the different concepts which are related to sets. 


You and your partner must work together to research the history of sets/set theory and the concepts related to sets. Once you are done researching you and your partner will create a slide - presentation and present it to the class. 

  1.  Explore the sites listed under the Resources to learn about the history of sets/set theory and the concepts related to it.
  2. Once you are done searching the concepts related to sets, choose three topics that you would like to present.
  3. Come to my desk so I can approve the presentation of the topic.
    1. You may not get your first choice if another group chose it.
  4. Prepare a slide presentation with the following information:
    1. Explanation of the concept.
    2. Example of the concept. (Provide Pictures)
