MATH1006- Math Reasoning CHAPTER 1 Midterm Study Guide Chapter 1.1 – Inductive and Deductive Reasoning • Inductive Reasoning (Induction) – process of arriving at a general conclusion based on observation of specific examples - We can never be absolutely sure that conclusions are true so they are called conjectures or hypotheses - Counterexample- one case where conjecture does not hold ture - Strong inductive argument – process of proving a specific conclusion from one or more general statements - Theorem- conclusion that is proved true by deductive reasoning Chapter 1.2 – Estimations, Graphing, and Mathematical Models • Estimation- the process of arriving at an approximate answer to a question • Rounding whole numbers 1. Look at the digit to the right of the digit where the rounding is to occur 2. If it is 5 or greater, add 1 to the digit to be rounded. If it is less than 5, keep the digit the same • Formula – statement of equality that uses letters to represent a relationship between 2 or more variables • Mathematical Model – the process of finding formulas to describe real world phenomena • Model Breakdown – when a mathematical model gives an estimate that is not a good approximation or is extended to include values of the variable that do not make sense Chapter 1.3 – Problem Solving (Polya’s Method) • Polya’s four steps in problem solving 1. Understand the problem 2. Devise a plan 3. Carry out plan and solve the problem 4. Look back and check answers
