In these lessons, we will learn how to use Carroll Diagrams. We also have some Carroll Diagram games that involve objects and numbers.

Carroll diagrams are tables that work like Venn diagrams and are used for the purpose of cross-classification. For Carroll diagrams, two attributes are being used for sorting, with one attribute of each characteristic being the focus.

The categories of a Carroll diagram should be mutually exclusive (do not overlap), for example even and not even numbers. In a Carroll Diagram, numbers or objects are either categorized as having an attribute or not having an attribute.

A table is created with four cells to show the four possible combinations of these two attributes. Either the items themselves, or the count of how many items of each type, are put in the cells.

The following diagram shows an example of a Carroll Diagram. Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions on how to use Carroll Diagrams.
