With Venn Diagrams on the new UK GCSE Mathematics specifications (an excellent addition I believe), and also on other exam specifications, I thought I would update an earlier post on Venn Diagrams and collect resources together.

CIMT Venn Diagrams

**CIMT** is one of my **Top >10 websites** for a very good reason – when I want additional examples for any topic at any level I can always find them on CIMT! Venn Diagrams is no exception to this, you can find Venn Diagrams in the student interactive resources **here **and the text chapter on Logic from the Year 7 text **here**; in sections 1.3 and 1.4 of the text you will find examples and exercises on set notation and Venn diagrams.

**Nrich** too can always be relied on to provide resources – **a search on ‘venn’ returns these resources**.

Diagnostic Questions

On **Diagnostic Questions** we have a **series of question like this.**

On Mathisfun see **Sets and Venn Diagrams; **note the questions at the bottom of the page.

In the comments below Anja has reminded us of Jonny Griffiths wonderful **RISPS** – see in particular **RISP 10.**

On a similar theme – from the Further Maths network have a look at the excellent **GCSE extension tasks**, see **NA1** for example.

These three interactives from **Shodor** are a good introduction to Venn diagrams:

**Venn Diagrams**, **Shape Sorter **and **Triple Venn Diagram Shape Sorter **

With the Triple Venn Diagram Shape Sorter you can either set the rules or guess the rules by selecting the appropriate botton:

Some excellent activities are available from the **Illuminations site**.

The **Shape Sorter** allows exploration of geometric properties of shapes.

Select Instructions and Exploration for clear information on how to use the resource.

From the **National Library of Virtual Manipulatives, **this **Venn Diagrams** applet allows exploration of set operations such as union and intersection.

**WolframAlpha** can also be used.

The **slideshow here** shows several examples.

Update: a Twitter conversation on a fun idea!

Now if the book seems a little pricey you can get ideas from the sample pages and I’m sure teachers can get creative! **Here’s some more on MailOnline. **

If you want to create your own there are plenty of tools to use – there is a **good summary here on Cometdocs**.
