Kristina Madore September 6, 2007 Graphing Assignment 1. Inductive reasoning is based upon precise observations. When combined, these observations can become one sweeping statement that puts all of the observed phenomena into one similar category and idea. Deductive reasoning is just the opposite. It takes general ideas and looks for specific answers or reasoning behind those ideas. Deductive reasoning usually takes the form of a hypothesis, where you have a theory or problem, and you use reasoning and experimentation to find the specific reasons behind the idea or problem. The two kinds of reasoning basically flow in opposite directions; Inductive reasoning goes from specific to general and deductive reasoning goes from general to specific. 2. A.) A hypothesis is an answer to a question that you want to test. It is usually in the form of an “if….then” statement, and the main focus of the statement is to either prove it right or wrong. The hypothesis is usually based upon previous data or observation and should usually be tested multiple times to secure accuracy.
