Abstract

In this chapter, we investigate infinite sets. We learn that “infinity” comes in different sizes. For example, there are more real numbers than integers, even though both sets are infinite We also learn that the smallest infinity is the size of the set of natural numbers and that there are just as many even nonnegative numbers as there are natural numbers.
