Discrete mathematics is the study of objects that take on distinct, separated values. The study of discrete mathematics is important in the field of Computer Science as computers can only understand discrete binary numbers. Use this course to learn more about the use and importance of discrete mathematics in the world of computer science. Examine the use of sets and perform common operations on them in Python. These operations include union, intersection, difference, and symmetric difference. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills to use and work with sets in the real world using Python.
