'Dunk Tank' is a math-themed game show created by the producers of Cyberchase and starring Harry from 'Cyberchase For Real.' Using a combination of video and interactive gaming, each program addresses a single topic in the 6th grade math curriculum a...nd students compete with themselves for high scores. Dunk Tank is an independent learning experience for students to complete in 15-30 minutes, depending on their proficiency, and can also be used to support teacher-led instruction. In this interactive, Harry explains key concepts about Venn Diagrams, including Venn Diagrams using 2 and 3 circles, plus a circle within a circle. Students play Zoo Mix-Up, a mini-game that challenges them to use Venn Diagrams to sort animals in a wacky zoo; watch a comic video where a Venn Diagram is used to make one pizza to suit everyone’s taste; and answer other questions designed to help students further their understanding of Venn Diagrams. Students can access support using a glossary, defining key math terms, and a menu of short segments to re-watch.[more]

The instructor shows how and when to use Venn Diagrams to solve word problems. He uses an interactive whiteboard to demonstrate the word problem that can be solved with Venn Diagrams. Urges students to label their charts and graphs. Teacher teaches ...clearly and provides good models. (05:34)[more]

In this video segment from Cyberchase, Bianca wants to pick up a pizza to share with her two friends.

In order to organize t...he preferences, Bianca draws a Venn Diagram and then arranges the pizza toppings according to the diagram. (03:25)[more]

This virtual manipulative represents three sets as overlapping circles. You can use it to represent set operations such as intersections, unions, and subsets.
The goal for each exercise is to shade the portion of the diagram corresponding to the gi...ven set.
You may begin by shading one or more entire sets (A, B, or C) and then clearing portions. When you have only the desired portion shaded, click the Check button.
There are more instructions to the right of the manipulative.[more]
