Inductive & Deductive Reasoning in Geometry: Definition & Uses

1. Inductive & Deductive Reasoning in Geometry: Definition & Uses

Watch this video lesson, and you will learn how important inductive and deductive reasoning is in the field of mathematics, especially when dealing with proofs in geometry. Learn how these two fundamental forms of reasoning give rise to formal theorems.

Properties and Postulates of Geometric Figures

2. Properties and Postulates of Geometric Figures

In geometry, there are some basic postulates that are relied upon as the basis for other theorems. Watch this video to learn about the postulates that deal with points, lines, and planes.

Algebraic Laws and Geometric Postulates

3. Algebraic Laws and Geometric Postulates

Watch this video to learn about the basic algebraic laws that are also part of the basic geometric postulates that form the basis for the geometry that we know and study today.

Euclid's Axiomatic Geometry: Developments & Postulates

4. Euclid's Axiomatic Geometry: Developments & Postulates

Learn how the way we do proofs in geometry had its start with Euclid in this video lesson. Learn about his contributions to the geometry we know today. Also learn about the five basic truths that he used as a basis for all other teachings.

Triangle Congruence Postulates: SAS, ASA & SSS

5. Triangle Congruence Postulates: SAS, ASA & SSS

When we have two triangles, how can we tell if they're congruent? They may look the same, but you can be certain by using one of several triangle congruence postulates, such as SSS, SAS or ASA.
