MM 150 Unit 1: Sets – Discussion
Unit 1: Sets – Discussion
The ability to classify items into sets is important in many contexts. For example, the registrar of a university puts student into classes. Each class can be considered a set. It can also be considered a subset of the entire student population. The admissions officer puts students into majors. Again, each major can be considered a subset of the entire student population. At graduation, students need to be put into groups with similar GPAs for honors, groups with similar degrees, or groups from different schools within the university. On this unit’s Discussion Board, you will investigate sets, subsets, and proper subsets using the words from your full name.
This Discussion topic has multiple parts. Please read and complete each part.
