answers until all four regions have a shape.
Looking at the shapes in your work area, what do they have in common? How are
Try moving the remaining shapes into the correct region. Check your answers
as you work. When you are finished, write some true mathematical statements
about your Venn diagram, and then clear the work area and try this activity with
two other rules.
