Students learn how to calculate the union and intersection of sets using Venn diagrams. As learning progresses students are challenged to use the union and intersection to calculate a probability.
At the start of the lesson recaps both collecting like terms and using Venn diagrams to calculate a probability. The plenary challenges students to apply set notation to three independent events within a Venn diagram.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to identify a union and intersect using set notation.
- Most students should be able to calculate a probability from a Venn diagram using set notation.
- Some students should be able to use set notation with probability trees and Venn diagrams.
