We are at the midway point in the course. This may be a good place to point out that the quizzes at the end of an LT are not primarily for assessment; rather, you should look at them as learning opportunities. The way ThinQ sees it, each bi-weekly Module is made up of three sets of triggers:
Primary Learning Trigger: the LT package readings and videos [directed inquiry]
Secondary Learning Trigger: the Quiz and Consolidated Feedback [individual inquiry]
Tertiary Learning Trigger: the Discussion Forum activity [collective inquiry]
In LT 6, we continue our journey through the mode of Mathematical Inquiry. Reading A explores a crucial tool of inquiry, namely, reasoning, and takes us through the steps of reasoning. It looks at why we need this tool not only across academic domains but in our everyday life as well; and how it is intricately tied up with the other tools we already have in our inquiry kit.
Reading B in LT 6 extends Reading B of LT5, by probing further into the pieces that go into constructing a mathematical theory, and how we prove a conjecture so it becomes a theorem.
