In a Year 4 maths lesson, students delve into the world of Venn diagrams, a visual tool for categorising items based on shared characteristics. This particular lesson focuses on using a Venn diagram with three overlapping circles, each representing a different sport: tennis, football, and baseball. Padma, seeking to understand her friends' sporting preferences, asked them which sports they liked and recorded the data using the three-circle Venn diagram. The diagram is a methodical way of sorting information and allows students to make specific observations about individual preferences.

From analysing the Venn diagram, several conclusions can be drawn about Padma's friends' sports likes. For instance, Claudia's name appears only in the circle representing tennis, indicating that she has a singular preference for that sport. Caleb's name is located in the area where the tennis and football circles intersect, showing that he enjoys both of these sports. Samira, similarly to Claudia, has her name exclusively within the baseball circle, suggesting she favours only this sport. Omar's name is found in the overlapping section of the baseball and football circles, which tells us he is a fan of both. Lastly, Theo's name is at the very centre, where all three circles intersect, revealing that he enjoys tennis, football, and baseball. These insights demonstrate the practical application of Venn diagrams in organising and interpreting data based on multiple criteria.
