Ch 7: AEPA Math: Reasoning

About This Chapter

Our chapter on reasoning skills in math can help prepare you for the AEPA Mathematics exam (which is actually the NES Mathematics exam). The self-assessment quizzes will help ensure you're ready to use reasoning skills to ace this exam.

AEPA Math: Reasoning - Chapter Summary

Reasoning is an essential skill in solving and teaching math. Whether you consider yourself an expert on the subject or you need some help understanding how to use reasoning in math, watch the brief, engaging video lessons in this chapter to review the subject. The lessons should leave you well-prepared for any test questions on the following:

  • Using inductive, deductive and connective reasoning to solve math problems
  • Applying the guess, check & revise method in math computation
  • Estimating effectively to answer math questions
  • Creating mathematical models to represent and solve real world problems
  • Replacing word problems with mathematical formulas

Use the video tags if you'd like to reexamine any video segments as you progress through the lessons. You can assess your overall understanding of all the lessons by completing the chapter exam.

Reasoning in Mathematics: Inductive and Deductive Reasoning

1. Reasoning in Mathematics: Inductive and Deductive Reasoning

Many people think that deductive and inductive reasoning are the same thing. It is assumed these words are synonymous. They are not. This lesson reveals the reality of these two types of reasoning.

Reasoning in Mathematics: Connective Reasoning

2. Reasoning in Mathematics: Connective Reasoning

Connective reasoning is reasoning that has an operation, or a way to connect two phrases. The five main logic connectives will be reviewed in this lesson.

Mathematical Principles for Problem Solving

3. Mathematical Principles for Problem Solving

Solving problems is not just a simple, straightforward process. There are a few principles that can help you as you approach any problem solving scenarios. This lesson covers those principles with examples.

Solving Problems With the Guess, Check & Revise Method

4. Solving Problems With the Guess, Check & Revise Method

In this lesson, we will look at how to solve problems using the guess, check, and revise method in mathematics. Through examples, we will look at each step involved and see exactly how this process works.

Solving Mathematical Problems Using Estimation

5. Solving Mathematical Problems Using Estimation

Estimating is a method of calculating a result that is close to, but not exactly, the correct answer to a math problem. Why would you ever need to do this? This lesson reviews estimating and answers the question as to why you would do it.

Using Mathematical Models to Solve Problems

6. Using Mathematical Models to Solve Problems

Mathematical modelling simply refers to the creation of mathematical formulas to represent a real world problem in mathematical terms. This lesson reviews the creation and pitfalls of mathematical models.
