Mathematical Notation


In then sections to follow we will introduce some common mathematical notation. This notation will be used in later sections, so it is best to familiarize yourself with them now. We will begin with scientific notation, which is used to express very large and very small numbers, move on to the notation associated with sets, and end with notation used in more advanced topics.


In the next section we will introduce scientific notation.
