In this activity, students categorize various data sets using Carroll and Venn diagrams to sort, compare, and classify objects.
The Venn and Carroll diagrams may be over a hundred years old, but it's still highly used in today's modern lessons from science, math, and computing to arts and design. Its utility has gone beyond teaching logical thinking.
- A Carroll diagram is a logic diagram used for grouping things in a yes/no fashion. Numbers or objects are either categorized as 'x' (having an attribute x) or 'not x' (not having that attribute).
- A Venn diagram is a diagram that shows all possible logical relations between a finite collection of different sets.
In the digital world, concepts used by the Venn and Carroll diagrams remain unchanged.
- Students use Carroll and Venn diagrams to compare and contrast information and recognize relationships between concepts.
- Students learn and develop visual perception skills.
This content requires students to perform the following:
- Inside the area where the circles overlap/intersect, place objects that match the properties defined by the intersecting circles.
- Specify the category names of the main circles
