Venn Diagrams

venn diagrams

Venn diagrams use circles help to visually represent the similarities and differences between various concepts and the relationships among things or finite groups of things. The intersection (overlap) of the sets is all the elements they have in common.

Another way to look at sets is with a visual tool called Venn diagrams, first developed by John Venn in the 1880s. In Venn diagrams, sets are represented by shapes; usually circles or ovals. The elements of a set are labeled within the circle.

We have editable 2, 3 and 4 circle Venn Diagrams to suit nearly any lesson plan.
