However, experience has shown that it works for secondary school students as well, and it can be used at the start of graduate school for those who have not yet seen the material. There are just two prerequisites. The course presumes that the student understands sets and set operations, such as union, intersection, and so forth. It also presumes that the student is comfortable with symbolic manipulation, as used, for example, in solving high-school algebra problems. Nothing else is required.
