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.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.

Surface Area of Cylinders

When I teach how to find the surface area of cylinders I like to add a constant level of challenge and enjoyment to the lesson.  Rather than repetitively calculating the surface area of a cylinder I introduce more complex cylindrical shapes.
