MATHEMATICS—MS. MARINI

A Venn diagram shows the relationship between a group of different things (a set) in a visual way.
Using Venn diagrams allows children to sort data into two or three circles which overlap in the middle.
Each circle follows a certain rule, so any numbers or objects placed in the overlapping part (the
intersection) follows both rules. This can be very useful when organizing several variables in a problem.

First, check out the link below with your child to learn more about using a venn diagram as a
problem solving strategy.

Next, your child can try out the enrichment problems below. There is a venn diagram problem in
each grade level band!

? SECOND AND THIRD GRADE ENRICHMENT LINK
? FOURTH AND FIFTH GRADE ENRICHMENT LINK

Have fun with math!
