Most of these terms are met when studying vectors and matrices. The grade level depends on what education system you come from.

Any book on introductory linear algebra should cover all of these. The Schaum's outline series are usually quite good, while a lot of my friends used this one (E F Robertson is a Scottish chap, so naturally the book is recommended in most Scottish uni's). There is also a more advanced version of the second book.

Where did you come across the term `maximum in a set'?

Thank you for the book suggestions. I've only glanced at the books suggested thus far, hopefully they are easy to understand any more options I'd be interested in :)
