Chat Preparation Essay

Post your essay answer to the questions below to the Moodle Unit 7 Forum before chat. Log into the Moodle (if you are challenged, use your own Scholars Online userid and password), click on the Natural Science course link, and then on the forum link for this unit. Read any other forum postings.

Explore the difference between mathematical proof and scientific proof.

"Explore" means that I am not looking for a "right" answer. Instead, try to define what you mean by proof when you are solving a geometry problem and what you mean if you say a scientific hypothesis has been proven to be true. Are these the same kind of proof? If they are different, how certain can you be about mathematical proof? How certain can you be about scientific proof?


Mastery Exercise

Log into the Moodle (if you are challenged, use your own Scholars Online userid and password), click on the mastery exercise for the unit, and attempt the mastery exercise at least once before chat. Bring any questions you have to chat. Then return and attempt the exercise as many times as necessary to achieve an 85% or better score.
