This final week of new work is focused on aspects of logic and logical methods of thinking and problem-solving.
One important area is inductive and deductive reasoning. We use these types of reasoning to draw conclusions or make decisions or solve problems.
Chapter 1 section 1-1 in the e-text presents information about these two types of reasoning.
After carefully studying this section respond to the below tasks in the context of Math 105:
- Provide an example in the context of Math 105 of a conclusion or decision you made based on inductive reasoning. Explain why inductive reasoning was involved.
- Provide an example in the context of Math 105 of when you used deductive reasoning. Explain why this was a use of deductive reasoning.
