This ebook is designed to be used in a one semester problem-oriented direction in undergraduate set idea. the mix of point and layout is a little strange and merits an evidence. mostly, challenge classes are provided to graduate scholars or chosen undergraduates. i've got stumbled on, despite the fact that, that the event is both precious to dull arithmetic majors. i exploit a up to date amendment of R. L. Moore's well-known strategy built lately by way of D. W. Cohen [1]. in short, during this new technique, tasks are assigned to teams of scholars every one week. With all of the useful the aid of the trainer, the teams entire their tasks, rigorously write a brief paper for his or her classmates, after which, within the unmarried weekly category assembly, lecture on their effects. whereas the em phasis is at the pupil, the teacher is out there at each degree to guarantee luck within the study, to give an explanation for and critique mathematical prose, and to teach the teams in transparent mathematical presentation. the subject material of set idea is specially applicable to this type of path. for far of the booklet the items of research are commonplace and whereas the theorems are major and sometimes deep, it's the equipment and ideas which are most crucial. the need of rea soning approximately numbers and units forces scholars to come back to grips with the character of evidence, common sense, and arithmetic. of their study they event an identical dilemmas and uncertainties that confronted the pio neers.

PROJECT # 8. 6. By induction on c: let cp(c) be the statement: VaVb(a +1'\1 (b +1'\1 c) = (a +1'\1 b) +1'\1 c). 8. By induction on n: let cp(n) be the statement: 0 +1'\1 n = n. PROJECT #9. 9. Commutativity turns out to be much trickier than associativity. Try this: first prove a + 1'\1 1 = 1 + 1'\1 a for all a E N (by induction), then prove a +1'\1 b = b +1'\1 a from this (also by induction). 12. Use induction on p. 13. You don't need induction. 14. 11. 56 Part Two PROJECT # 11. 15. Once again, the commutative law is the most difficult.

1. Logic and Set Theory 53 One consequence of this theorem is that Russell's paradox no longer haunts us. Actually, the paradox disappears even without using Regularity. Instead, we simply have a proof that R = {x Ix ¢ x} is not a set (because if it were, then we would have R E R iff R ¢ R -an impossibility). 5. Tricky again-apply Regularity to {A,B}. 7. Use Extension. PROJECT # 5. {a, b} fails, for example. If c =1= d, then we want
