Year 7 - Unit 1 - Logic and Venn Diagrams

Updated: Oct 30, 2023




This year you will be revising and extending the maths that you learned in the primary years. The main learning tool you will use is a workbook from the Center for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching. It is a good idea to print out the entire workbook now and place it into a file so it is ready when you need it. I am also going to ask you to keep a learning journal this could be a large notebook or simply A4 sheets you add to your folder.


Your work is organised into tasks. There is no set time to complete each task, some you may whizz through and find easy, and others you may need to spend some extra time on. For each task, I will give you links to games, videos and extra resources, use good internet safety behaviours when leaving this webpage. Remember this is your learning, take your time and work hard but always set yourself a time limit. I suggest 30-40 mins a day on maths, once you reach that time limit stop and go and do something else, preferably something active.


Task 1 - Logic Puzzles

All maths is based on logic, so we are going to start with some logic problems.

Go to Puzzlebaron's site, read the instructions and have a go at a couple of logic problems. You can make them as large as you want by changing the grid size and you can also change the difficulty level. You will be asked to do logic problems at the start of each task, so do not worry if they seem difficult to begin with you will soon get the hang of them.

Task 2 - Two-way Tables

Go to Puzzlebaron's site and complete at least 1 puzzle.


Some quick maths practice. Go to Make a Number on Mathsplayground and play the game. Change the difficulty by changing the number of cards.


In maths, we often use two-way tables to display information.

Task 4 - Identify Sets

You can choose today whether to complete a logic problem on Puzzlebaron or more Grid activities on Mathsplayground.


Watch Identify and Represent Sets on White Rose Maths.



Literacy and History link

Use your resources to create a biography for John Venn. Who was he? When and where did he live? What was he famous for?


Here is a great article by The Conversation to get you started.

This site Agroprep, is a fun site to work through but has lots of clickable adverts, please do not click off the page!


Here is a quick video to recap biography writing by Mary Ceido.



Remember your biography does not have to be an essay, there are lots of ways to make your work more interesting and fun:

  • Write a conversation between a chat show host and your famous person.

  • Write a poem about your famous person.

  • Create a timeline.

  • Film yourself delivering a news broadcast about the person.

  • Create a presentation.

  • Present and record your research as a spoken word or slam poetry piece.

Task 5 - Venn Diagrams and Sets

Play Galaxy Pals on Mathplayground.


Watch Interpret and create Venn Diagrams on White Rose Maths.

  4. Uses of Venn diagrams

That is it for Unit 1. Well done!
