Section 2 : Set Theory
Set theory is a fundamental concept throughout mathematics. Intuitively a set is a collection of objects, which are called elements. Although this seems like a simple idea, it has some far reaching consequences throughout all of mathematics.

Section 5 : Graphs
Graph theory is the study of points and lines. In particular, it involves the ways in which sets of points, called vertices, can be connected by lines, called edges.
Graphs are classified according to their complexity, the number of edges allowed between any two vertices, and whether or not directions are assigned to edges.
