This is a free lesson from our course in Amsco's Integrated Algebra

This lesson explains concept of universal set and operations with sets like you have learnt in arithmetic and in geometry. Set is the collection of distinct objects or elements. E.g. A= {0, 1, 2, 3...} is the set of whole numbers. The universal set, also called the universe, is the set of all elements under consideration in a given situation, usually denoted by the letter U. Three operations with sets are called intersection, union, and complement. Intersection of sets A & B is the set of all elements that belong to both A & B and is denoted as A∩B. E.g. say A = { 1, 2, 3, 4 } and B = { 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 }, then A∩B = { 2, 3, 4 }. The union of two sets, A and B, denoted by A U B, is the set of all elements that belong to set A or to set B, or to both set A and set B.

E.g. say A = { 2, 5, 6, 7 } and B = { 5, 7, 9, 10 }, then A U B = { 2, 5, 6, 7,
9, 10 }. The complement of a set A, denoted by A', is the set of all elements that
belong to the universe U but do not belong to set A. Therefore, before we can determine
the complement of A, we must know U. E.g. say U = { 1, 2, 3, 4, . . . } and A =
{ 1, 3, 5, 7, . . . }, then A'= { 2, 4, 6, 8, . . . } .

As many of you know, Winpossible's online courses use a unique teaching method where
an instructor explains the concepts in any given area to you in his/her own voice
and handwriting, just like you see your teacher explain things to you on a blackboard
in your classroom. This particular lesson includes the teacher's instruction, practice
questions as well as end-of-lesson quizzes for practice. As we mentioned above,
you can

The format of Winpossible's online courses is also very suitable for teachers who
are using an interactive whiteboard such as Smartboard on Promethean in their classrooms,
because the course lessons can be easily displayed on such interactive whiteboards.
Volume pricing is available for schools interested in our online courses. For more
