Conditional Statements
Objective: Be able to recognize conditional statements and
write converse, inverse and countrapositive statements
Check.4.16
Use inductive reasoning to write conjectures and/or conditional statements
Develop an understanding of the tools of logic and proof, including aspects of
CLE 3108.4.3
formal logic as well as construction of proofs.
Identify, write, and interpret conditional and bi-conditional statements along with
Check.4.15
the converse, inverse, and contra-positive of a conditional statement.

Statement – if you get 100%, then your
teacher will give you an A
TRUE
If you get 100% correct, your teacher gives you
an A.
False
 If you get 100% correct, your teacher gives you
a B.
True, can’t say not
 You get 98%, your teacher gives you an A.
 You get 85% correct then your teacher gives you
a B.
