### About Sets Part 1:

A set is a collection of things in which the order is not important. We enclose the items or elements of a set with curly braces: “{}”. We name sets with capital letters such as A, B, or K. We can say set A is the set of whole numbers that are even and less than 12: A = {0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10}.

Test Objectives

- Demonstrate the ability to list the elements of a set using the roster method
