### Transcript of "Chapter 2 section 1"

1. 1. Chapter 2 Section 1 Miss Novak
2. 2. Conjecture• An educated guess based on known information.
3. 3. Inductive Reasoning • Reasoning that uses anumber of specific examples to arrive at a plausiblegeneralization or prediction
4. 4. Patterns andConjectures
5. 5. Give it a try!• The numbers represented below are called triangular numbers. Make a conjecture about the next triangular number based on the pattern.Observe: Each triangle is formed by adding another row of dots.
6. 6. Find a Pattern: 1+2=3 3+3=6 6+4=10So the numbers increase by 2, 3 and 4.
7. 7. Counter Example• An example used to show that a given statement is not always true.
8. 8. Find a Counter Example1. Given: DE = EF Conjecture: E is the midpoint of DF Answer: True, there is no counter example.
9. 9. Find a Counter Example2. Given: JK = KL = LM = MJ Conjecture: JKLM forms a square Answer: JKLM may not have all right angles.
10. 10. Find a Counter Example3. Given: n is a real number Conjecture: n x n is nonnegative number Answer: True, there is no counter example.
11. 11. As you can see you cannot alwaysfind a counter example, but when you do they prove the conjecture/statement false.
