Venn Diagrams

Venn diagrams are introduced as a means to organise sets of data into a sample space diagram.  As learning progresses students calculate probabilities from distinct and overlapping events.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the probability from a Venn diagram with two intersecting circles.
  • Most students should be able to complete a Venn diagram and calculate the probabilities of two intersecting circles.
  • Some students should be able to complete and use a Venn diagram with three intersecting circles.

How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]

Calculations with Percentages

Students learn how to find a percentage of an amount using calculator and non-calculator methods.  As learning progresses they use decimal multipliers to find a percentage change and calculate a simple interest in financial mathematics.
