Logic and Sets

By Mr. Mohamed Nishad Maniparambath   |   Farook College, Kozhikode
Learners enrolled: 134
The course is developed to enable the undergraduate students to get a comprehensive understanding of the logic and sets. This course provides an introduction to the basic concepts and results of mathematical logic and set theory. The course introduces some basic notions that will be needed as background for most of the mathematics and computer science courses. Also, the course will familiarize students with abstract mathematical thinking. We will present and explain how different mathematical theories can be modelled inside the set theoretic universe.  The primary Learning Outcome for this course is Mathematical Reasoning, which is to understand and apply mathematical concepts and reasoning, and analyze and interpret various types of data. The Learning Outcome will be assessed through targeted questions on either the comprehensive final or an outside assignment. In an increasingly complex world, mathematical thinking, understanding, and skill are more important than ever.  Students wishing to major in the sciences or engineering are required to understand logic and sets.  It provides a solid foundation for further study in mathematics, the sciences, and engineering.
