Have you ever taught Venn and Caroll Diagrams like this? KS1, KS2, KS3 or at KS4?

Venn and Caroll Diagrams at ks1, ks2,ks3 & ks4

Very soon the UK will go Venn Diagram and Caroll Diagram crazy as it is a topic that once was taught at KS1 and KS2 but now is making a new appearance at KS3 and KS4 due to the new changes in specification. Teachers will be searching for different strategies to develop the pedagogy to deliver lessons on these topics.

From September 2015 teachers at KS3 and KS4 will have to consider the following;

  • Enumerate sets and combinations of sets systematically, using tables, grids, Venn diagrams and tree diagrams
  • Calculate and interpret conditional probabilities through representation using expected frequencies with two-way tables, tree diagrams and Venn diagrams.

It is very likely that you have searched on google and made your way to this page and now looking for a way to teach how to create and interpret venn diagrams to your pupils.

Now, teachers who have not yet developed pedagogy for this new topic may find it a little uncomfortable at first but there are some great resources out there  that can help you deliver some great lessons on Venn and Caroll Diagrams.
