Lesson 2-1

Inductive Reasoning and Conjecture

Ohio Content Standards:
• Establish the validity of conjectures about geometric objects, their properties and relationships by counter-example, inductive and deductive reasoning, and critiquing arguments made by others.
Ohio Content Standards:
• Make, test and establish the validity of conjectures about geometric properties and relationships using counterexample, inductive and deductive reasoning, and paragraph or two-column proof.
Ohio Content Standards:
• Generalize and explain patterns and sequences in order to find the next term and the nth term.
Conjecture
• An educated guess based on known information
Inductive Reasoning
• Reasoning that uses a number of specific examples to arrive at a plausible generalization or prediction

For points L, M, and N, LM = 20, MN = 6, and LN = 14. Make a conjecture and draw a figure to illustrate your conjecture.
Counterexample
• A false example to show that a conjecture is not true
Determine whether each conjecture is true or false. Give a counterexample for any false conjecture.
Determine whether each conjecture is true or false. Give a counterexample for any false conjecture.

Given: x is an integer.

Conjecture: -x is negative.

Determine whether each conjecture is true or false. Give a counterexample for any false conjecture.

Given: WXYZ is a rectangle.

Conjecture: WX = YZ and WZ = XY
