### Deductive to change the world.” Reasoning II

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ― Nelson MandelaDo Now

Explain in your own words what deductive reasoning is.

Exit Slip Error Analysis to change the world.”

Compare your exit slip to this one.

Problem Solving at an early age to change the world.”

Judging the validity of conditional statements

Today’s Objectives to change the world.”

Explain the laws used in the deductive reasoning process.

Use deductive reasoning to lead to accurate conclusions.

Use the Law of Detachment

Use the Law of Syllogism

Use Problem Solving Skills

Rewrite in conditional to change the world.” (“if-then”) form

All quadrilaterals have four sides.

If it’s a quadrilateral, then it has four sides.

Inverse?

If it’s not a quadrilateral, then it does not have four sides.

In other words, it has more or less than four sides.

Rewrite in conditional to change the world.” (“if-then”) form

A triangle has, at most, one right angle.

If it’s a triangle, then it has, at most, one right angle.

Inverse?

If it’s not a triangle, then it has more than one right angle.

Rewrite in conditional to change the world.” (“if-then”) form

Two lines in a plane always intersect at exactly one point

If there are two lines in a plane, they intersect at exactly one point

Negation?

If there are two lines in a plane, they do not intersect at exactly one point.

In other words, they do not intersect at all or they intersect at more than one point.

Counterexample: Parallel lines!

Some terms to change the world.”

Axiom – a self-evident truth that requires no proof; a statement accepted as fact

Postulate – a proposition that requires no proof

Theorem – a proposition that can be deduced from the premises or assumptions of a system

Corollary – a proposition that is incidentally proved in proving another proposition

Equivalence Properties to change the world.”

Reflexive Property

Symmetric Property

Transitive Property

Reflexive Property to change the world.”

A=A

A quantity is equal to itself

In logic, A A.

Always true in logic

If you’re a student at Simon Tech, then you’re a student at Simon Tech.

If a pentagon has five sides, then a pentagon has five sides.

Symmetric Property to change the world.”

If A=B then B=A

Always true of numbers (if x=5 then 5=x)

In logic, If A B, then B A.

Not always true.

If I eat too much I get sick. If I get sick then I eat too much.

But when is it true?

When the Biconditional statement is true.

For example, “Two lines intersect iff they are not parallel”

Transitive Property to change the world.”

- Also known as the Law of Syllogism
- If A=B and B=C then A=C
- In logic, If A B and B C, then A C.
- For example:
- If the electric power is cut, then the refrigerator does not work.
- If the refrigerator does not work, then the food is spoiled.
- So if the electric power is cut, then the food is spoiled.

Law of Detachment to change the world.”

- Also known as Modus Ponens
- If P Qis true and P is true, then Q must be true.
- For example
- If an angle is obtuse, then it cannot be acute.
- Angle A is obtuse.
- Therefore, Angle A cannot be acute.

Law of Syllogism to change the world.”

Transitive Property

Is this valid? to change the world.”

Christian wrote the following argument:

If the soccer team loses, Janalee won’t watch their next game.

Janalee watched their next game.

Therefore, the soccer team lost.

No. But what can Christian conclude?

The soccer team won.

Is this valid? to change the world.”

Jessica wrote the following argument:

If the sun is out, then Karina will go to the beach.

If she does not go with friends, then Karina will not go to the beach.

The sun is out.

Therefore, Karina goes with friends.

Deductive Reasoning reasoning!

Invalid.

A, B, and C could all lie in plane G and still be collinear.

Challenge reasoning!

W

Practice reasoning!

Today’s Objectives reasoning!

Explain the laws used in the deductive reasoning process.

Use deductive reasoning to lead to accurate conclusions.

Use the Law of Detachment

Use the Law of Syllogism

Use Problem Solving Skills

Exit reasoning!Slip

- Describe the following properties:
- Reflexive
- Symmetric
- Transitive
