Building Venn Diagrams

In this lesson plan students watch a video clip of Bianca as she uses Venn diagrams to try to satisfy three people's preferences in pizza toppings. Students practice using Venn diagrams to represent the pizza topping preferences. Learners are then introduced to prime numbers, prime factorization, and the use of Venn diagrams to determine least common multiple and greatest common factor. Support materials are included: Handout: Gleamers and Glow Power, Assessment: Levels A and B and answer keys are provided.
