Geometry Chapter 2 Terms

2
**Axiom Also known as a postulate.**

A statement that describes a fundamental relationship between the basic terms of geometry.

3
Biconditional The conjunction of a conditional statement and its converse.

4
Compound Statement A statement formed by joining two or more statements.

5
Conclusion In a conditional statement, the statement that immediately follows the word then.

6
**Conditional Statement**

A statement that can be written in if-then form.

7
Conjecture An educated guess based on known information.

8
Conjunction A compound statement formed by joining two or more statements with the word and.

9
Contrapositive The statement formed by negating both the hypothesis and conclusion of the converse of a conditional statement.

10
Converse The statement formed by exchanging the hypothesis and conclusion of a conditional statement.

11
Counterexample An example used to show that a given statement is not always true.

12
Deductive Argument A proof formed by a group of algebraic steps used to solve a problem.

13
Deductive Reasoning A system of reasoning that uses facts, rules, definitions, or properties to reach logical conclusions.

14
Disjunction A compound statement formed by joining two or more statements with the word or.

15
**Formal Proof Also known as a two-column proof.**

Contains statements (each step) and reasons (properties that justify each step) organized in two columns.

16
Hypothesis In a conditional statement, the statement that immediately follows the word if.

17
If-then Statement A compound statement of the form “if A, then B”, where A and B are statements.

18
Inductive Reasoning Reasoning that uses a number of specific examples to arrive at a plausible generalization or prediction. Conclusions arrived at by this lack the logical certainty of those arrived at by deductive reasoning.

19
**Informal Proof Also known as a paragraph proof.**

For this type you write a paragraph to explain why a conjecture for a given situation is true.

20
Inverse The statement formed by negating both the hypothesis and conclusion of a conditional statement.

21
