Union and Intersection of Sets


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.

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.
