About This Quiz & Worksheet

Inductive and deductive methods of reasoning permeate the formal proofs and theorems upon which geometry is based. This quiz/worksheet combo will help you better understand these methods. The quiz questions will test you on the characteristics of inductive and deductive reasons and how to use these methods in studying geometry.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In these assessments, you'll be tested on:

  • The bases of inductive and deductive reasoning
  • How to use these reasoning methods to formulate hypotheses
  • Using these methods to analyze hypotheses

Skills Practiced

This quiz and worksheet will allow you to test your skills in the following areas:

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information on deductive and inductive reasoning from the related lesson
  • Critical thinking - apply relevant concepts to examine information about proofs, theorems, and hypotheses in a different light
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information on these methods of reasoning and how they produce correct conclusions
