How Venn Diagrams Can Help Students in Math
Venn diagrams are used in math to visually assist students when grouping real sets or implied ideas. The diagrams were invented by John Venn and are his only known accomplishments in the science of mathematical logic (Stapel, 2012). The diagram begins with all related information and is named the universal set. In this set all the known information pertaining to the problem or ideas are grouped. Within this group we have at least two subset or classifications. Information is placed in the correlating group. This information may overlap creating an intersection of the groups. This intersection shows the similarities of the groups and provides a basis for further conclusions based on the grouping of the diagram (Billstein, Libeskind, & Lott, 2010). Recognizing Shapes and Colors

Group A contains five (5) rectangles and three (3) triangles. All items in group A are red. Group B contains seven (7) triangles; four (4) are green. The other triangles are red. Draw a Venn diagram illustrating these conditions, and then answer the following questions by looking at the diagram (Burrell, 2012).

(Microsoft Office, 2012)
1. How many triangles are included in both groups A and B? 2. How many objects are included in group A and not in group B? 3. Write an equation to illustrate the union of A and B.
A group discussion following the exercise can include naming and identifying objects not in the diagram. An example would be hearts and circles (Burrell, 2012). Comparing ideas
Venn diagrams are useful in graphically organizing ideas and understanding logical probabilities. Students are asked how many have eaten crawfish and how many have eaten boudin. Both are a local favorite dish within my district. Six (6) students have eaten crawfish. I find eight (8) students have eaten boudin. Three (3) of the students...

At least one reference
Venndiagrams are very useful in the education world. Teachers have used Venndiagrams to a multitude of ways. What is a Venn...

...A Venndiagram is a drawing, in which circular areas represent groups of items usually sharing common properties. The drawing consists of two or more circles, each representing a specific group or set. This process of visualizing logical relationships was devised by John Venn (1834-1923).
Each Venndiagram begins with a rectangle representing theuniversal set. Then each set of values in the problem is represented...

1. What is set?
Answer: A set in mathematics is a collection of well defined and distinct objects, considered as an object in its own right. Sets are one of the most fundamental concepts in mathematics. Developed at the end of the 19th century, set theory is now a ubiquitous part of mathematics,...

...What are Venndiagrams?
A Venndiagram is an illustration of the relationships between and among sets, groups of objects that share something in common. Usually, Venndiagrams are used to depict setintersections (denoted by an upside-down letter U). This type of diagram is used in scientific and engineering presentations, in theoretical mathematics, in computer applications, and in statistics....
