Taboo Mathematics Taboo deals with set theory in Mathematics. This branch is concerned with the relationships between groups of elements that are referred to as sets. If a set A is made up of b o and x we may represent this as; A = {b o x}. Similarly B = {c o n t a i n e for elements in set A. he knows that the opponent can only be in possession of card with an o at most. Thus an understanding of the sets helps a player understand the basic rules of the game and strategize towards realizing a victory in the game. Reference Poirier S. (2017).

## Order Description:

What does Taboo have to do with math though? Taboo deals with a branch of mathematics called “set theory.” To explore this, sit down with your team and spread out all of the cards so that everyone can see and reach everything. Take a few minutes to sort the cards into whatever different groups you feel are appropriate. Be prepared to defend your decisions. Common Notations and Symbols Let’s assume that we have two sets called A and B. They are like two “boxes” that contain the following things: A = {b, o, x} B = {c, o, n, t, a, i, e, r} Since these are filled with letters, let’s say that they exist in the universe of the alphabet: U = {a, b, c,…, y, z} Use these three sets as a reference while going through the chart (see attachments) Project Assignment – Task 4: How are sets utilized within the game? When you consider “sets” as a collection of objects or information, it turns out that most games have some type of set elements (some more than others)! How does your game utilize sets? Specifically: • What sets are present in your game? • What are the elements of those sets? • Are there elements in the unions and intersections of these sets? • Can an understanding of these sets help a player develop a winning strategy?
