For the rest of this vacation week, I will be posting a series of entries related to set theory, and how might teach it in New York State.

Quick background: Some basic set theory is in the Integrated Algebra curriculum. (new, last year). There had been no set theory in New York State high school math for at least a full generation previous.

Posts may include:

  • some set theory basics
  • what’s actually in the NY State standards? what’s shown up on the 3 Integrated Algebra Regents exams so far?
  • Problems of vocabulary
  • Teaching topics vs teaching a unit
  • A suggested unit
  • Not allowing set theory to be “stand alone” – creating links in other parts of the curriculum
  • Some extra topics
  • problem solving related to sets
  • thoughts about professional development and set theory

Here are some previous posts related to teaching set theory:

And we end with this bligblug morsel:
