# Math: Sets & Set Theory

What Are Sets? How to use Sets in Math? Here we have a comprehensive collection of lessons on sets and set theory in math.

We often deal with groups or collection of objects in real life, such a set of books, a group of students, a team of basketball players, a list of states in a country, a collection of baseball cards, etc.

Sets may be thought of as a mathematical way to represent collections or groups of objects. The concept of sets is an essential foundation for various other topics in mathematics.

This series of lessons cover the essential concepts of math set theory - the basic ways of describing sets, use of set notation, finite sets, infinite sets, empty sets, subsets, universal sets, complement of a set, basic set operations including intersection and union of sets, using Venn diagrams and simple applications of sets.
