One of the prerequisites for the improvement of the teaching of mathematics in our country is an improved curriculum---one which takes account of the increasing use of mathematics in science and technology and in other areas of knowledge and at the same time one which reflects recent advances in mathematics itself. In the new curriculum of mathematics, we have found the problems to teach the concept of sets at secondary level. The idea of a set is the most fundamental one in mathematics. So, this thesis contains the studies of the systematic analysis of sets in dealing with the traditional textbook. The scope of the work is limited to the fundamental ideas, and so it merely touches on the topics of the Concepts, Operations, Cardinal Numbers, Application of Logic, One-to-one Correspondence, Probability and so on. It provides only the essentials, definitions, proofs and some example which are already known and understood in their traditional context. It also presents at the appropriate stages the concepts required (illustrated by examples) in a much clearer fashion than classical teaching does. To compete a study of the sets covered in the textbook of each year, greater detail is needed at the appropriate level.
