First, get students interested with fun examples. Students determine whether statements are inductive, deductive or neither. I have collected some of my favorite examples submitted by students over the years and incorporated them into the worksheet. Then, take learning to the next level as students create their own statements.
Please see the PREVIEW for example problems.

Teaching Tip – This is one of my favorite activities. I ask students to cut off the bottom and hand in their examples. Then I read through the examples and students decide if it is inductive or deductive (and usually get a good laugh as well). This can be very instructive as some students are bound to make mistakes and the entire class will learn from the mistakes.
