The resulting axioms are ten thoroughly mundane statements about sets. The category of sets.

You can find more on the history of such courses at my MO response here. Each time I taught the course I ended up doing very little with cardinalities of infinite sets: Composition of opposed maps.

In this work, the authors lay out the concepts of conceptual mathematics in a way that is very understandable to students and to mathrmatics. I have recently come across Conceptual Mathematics: The algebra of composition.

Conceptual mathematics is sort of the bridge between philosophical logic and math, so the student is exposed to concepts much more than operational mathematics.
