Chapter 2 reviews basic ideas of natural, real, integer and rational number sets, and how they are manipulated arithmetically and algebraically. The chapter contains sections on axioms, expressions, equations and ordered pairs, and concludes with an introductory description of groups, abelian groups, rings and fields. The chapter summarises key formulae and contains some useful worked examples.
