John Venn

Lyrics and Performance by Vicki Young
Melody: "John Jacob Jingleheimer Smith"

John Venn was a clever little man,

He made up those diagrams.

Now you can use them, too,

Just like he used to do,

To sort data and show logic without end!

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!

 

Start with a circle for each set.

Examine the attributes.

Find traits that are the same

And differences to name

To produce a Venn set that tells the truth!

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!

 

Two sets that share a common trait

Must share a region, too.

But if they are disjoint,

To separate circles point

Label regions and then you will be through!

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
