History

The following calendar will be populated with links to worksheets, videos, activities and daily posts, so you can catch up on anything you’ve missed and revisit important material.

  • Wednesday, August 26th:
    • What we did in class: We began discussing sets.  We covered the definition of set, element, equality, cardinality and subsets, as well as some standard sets of numbers and the empty set.  We did lots of examples.  
    • In-class notes
  • Friday, August 28th:
  • Monday, August 31st:
    • What we did in class:  We shared active reading strategies, we talked about what is a proof, and then we considered the sandbox problem.  As a group we decided on the answer, and then we broke into groups to try to write up proofs.
    • After-class daily post link:  Due Wed Sept 2
  • Wednesday, September 2nd:
    • What we did in class:  We discussed some first examples of proofs based on the sandbox problem (pdf notes).  Then we introduced two types of set-builder notation (link to notes).
    • After class daily post link: Due Friday Sept 4
  • Wednesday, September 9th:
    • What we did in class:  We finished up with some lecture about set builder notation in the contexts of the real line (interval notation), the Cartesian plane (where you draw graphs for example), and the universe of subsets of some set.  Then we began discussing a proof of the fact that if n is odd, then n^2 is odd.  We only got as far as deciding on our definitions.  Here are class notes.

  • Friday, September 11th:
    • What we did in class:  We finished up about the n^2 odd proof.  Then we introduced and discussed Cartesian products.  Here are notes.

  • Monday, September 14th:
    • What we did in class:  We continued Cartesian products, talking about the Multiplication Principle, and we also discussed Power Sets and proved a formula for the cardinality of a Power Set.  Here are notes.
