### Essential Questions:

Essential Questions How do we know when an object is intrinsically part of a set or not? Why do we have to consider objects as such? Why do you think the study of the concept of sets important? How is the concept of set being used in other fields of study? Which is more essential: the learning of the concept of sets or the acquisition of knowledge of the set of real numbers?

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Use Venn diagrams to represent sets, subsets, and set operations Understand the notation, terminology, and concepts related to Venn diagrams and set notation Solve problems involving sets using Venn diagrams. What You'll Learn

### Venn Diagram:

Venn Diagram To draw a Venn diagram, you first draw a rectangle which is called your "universe". In the context of Venn diagrams, the universe is not "everything", but "everything you're dealing with right now". Let's deal with the following list of things: moles, swans, rabid skunks, geese, worms, horses, Edmontosorum (a variety of duck-billed dinosaurs), platypuses, and a very fat cat. We will call our universe "Animals"

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram moles swans rabid skunks geese worms horses Edmontosorum (a variety of duck-billed dinosaurs) platypuses a very fat cat. Let us say we want to classify things according to being small and furry or being a duck-bill . We draw circles to display our classifications:

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram Now we will fill in, or "populate", the diagram. moles swans rabid skunks geese worms horses Edmontosorum (a variety of duck-billed dinosaurs) platypuses a very fat cat. Moles, rabid skunks, platypuses, and cat are all small and furry :

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram moles swans rabid skunks geese worms horses Edmontosorum (a variety of duck-billed dinosaurs) platypuses a very fat cat. Swans, geese, platypuses, and Edmontosorum are all duck-bills :

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram moles swans rabid skunks geese worms horses Edmontosorum (a variety of duck-billed dinosaurs) platypuses a very fat cat. Worms are small but not furry and horses are furry but not small, and neither is a duck-bill. However, they are animals; they fit inside our universe, but outside the circles.

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram What do you observe with the diagram? In other words, we really should have drawn the circles overlapped, like this:

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram Now when we populate the Venn diagram, we will only have to write "platypuses" once, in the overlap: moles swans rabid skunks geese worms horses Edmontosorum (a variety of duck-billed dinosaurs) platypuses a very fat cat. What do you observe with the circles?

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram and Set Notation The following examples should help you understand the notation, terminology, and concepts related to Venn diagrams and set notation. Let U = {1, 2, 3, 4} A  = {1, 2} and B = {2, 3} Then we have the following relationships, with pinkish shading marking the solution "regions" in the Venn diagrams:

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Set Notation Pronunciation Meaning Venn diagram Answer A U B " A union B " everything that is in either of the sets   {1, 2, 3} " A intersect B " only the things that are in both of the sets   {2} A c or ~ A " A complement", or "not A " everything in the universe outside of   A   {3, 4} A ^ B or Venn Diagram and Set Notation Let U = {1, 2, 3, 4} A  = {1, 2} and B = {2, 3}

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram and Set Notation A – B " A minus B " , Or " A complement B " everything in A except for anything in its overlap with B   {1} ~( A U   B ) " not ( A union B )" everything outside A and B   {4} " not ( A intersect B )" everything outside of the overlap of A and   B   {1, 3, 4} Set Notation Pronunciation Meaning Venn diagram Answer ~( A ^ B ) or ~( A  B) Let U = {1, 2, 3, 4} A  = {1, 2} and B = {2, 3}

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram and Set Notation Describe the following sets: Wet clothes and dry clothes are separated A B Set A and B are disjoint sets All cheerleaders are girls Set D is a subset of Set C

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram and Set Notation Try this: Describe the following sets: Some boys and some girls are varsity players The intersection of Set E and Set F is composed of Varsity players

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram and Set Notation Observe the following Venn diagram and describe by providing the appropriate set operation.

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram and Set Notation Given the following set operations, provide an illustration using the Venn diagram. 1. 2. 3. 4.

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram Word Problems Venn diagram word problems generally give you two or three classifications and a bunch of numbers. You then have to use the given information to populate the diagram and figure out the remaining information. For instance… Out of forty students, 14 are taking English Composition and 29 are taking Chemistry. If five students are in both classes, how many students are in neither class? How many are in either class? What is the probability that a randomly-chosen student from this group is taking only the Chemistry class?

Venn Diagram Word Problems Out of forty students, 14 are taking English Composition and 29 are taking Chemistry. If five students are in both classes, how many students are in neither class? How many are in either class? What is the probability that a randomly-chosen student from this group is taking only the Chemistry class? First, draw a universe for the forty students, with two overlapping circles labeled with the total in each:

Venn Diagram Word Problems Out of forty students, 14 are taking English Composition and 29 are taking Chemistry. If five students are in both classes, how many students are in neither class? How many are in either class? What is the probability that a randomly-chosen student from this group is taking only the Chemistry class? Since five students are taking both classes, put "5" in the overlap:

How many are in either class? What is the probability that a randomly-chosen student from this group is taking only the Chemistry class? We have now accounted for five of the 14 English students, leaving nine students taking English but not Chemistry, so we put "9" in the "English only" part of the "English" circle:

How many are in either class? What is the probability that a randomly-chosen student from this group is taking only the Chemistry class? We have also accounted for five of the 29 Chemistry students, leaving 24 students taking Chemistry but not English, so we put "24" in the "Chemistry only" part of the "Chemistry" circle:

Venn Diagram Word Problems Out of forty students, 14 are taking English Composition and 29 are taking Chemistry. If five students are in both classes, how many students are in neither class? How many are in either class? What is the probability that a randomly-chosen student from this group is taking only the Chemistry class? This tells us that a total of 9 + 5 + 24 = 38 students are in either English or Chemistry (or both). This leaves two students unaccounted for, so they must be the ones taking neither class.

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Venn Diagram Word Problems Out of forty students, 14 are taking English Composition and 29 are taking Chemistry. If five students are in both classes, how many students are in neither class? How many are in either class? What is the probability that a randomly-chosen student from this group is taking only the Chemistry class? *Two students are taking neither class. *There are 38 students in at least one of the classes. *There is a 24/40 = 0.6 = 60% probability that a randomly-chosen student in this group is taking Chemistry but not English. From this populated Venn diagram, I can get the answers to the questions.

### The Venn diagram is also used to analyse different relationship that exists between two or more objects. :

The Venn diagram is also used to analyse different relationship that exists between two or more objects. Into swimming but not basketball? 2. Into both swimming and basketball? 3. Into either swimming or basketball? 4. Neither into swimming nor basketball? Venn Diagram Word Problems The Venn diagram below shows student involvement in two sports. If 100 students were surveyed, how many students were:

### Historical Note:

Historical Note John Venn (4 August 1834 – 4 April 1923), was a British logician and philosopher. He is famous for introducing the Venn diagram, which is used in many fields, including set theory, probability, logic, statistics, and computer science.

### Summing up!!!:

Summing up!!! Can you share to the class some new terms you learned today? Which definition struck you the most? If you can share a topic that you learned today to a friend, what would it be? Why?
