Did you have to| | |wait a long time to see a doctor? | | |Did you notice any patients who | | |came in after you received medical | | |treatment before you? The medical | | |staff must use logical thinking in | | |order to determine medical | | |priorities and give care to life | | |threatening situations first. For | | |example, a gunshot victim would | | |take precedence over a flu patient.| | |Logical clear thinking is needed | | |for professional practice across | | |all disciplines. Students need math| | |reasoning skills for making | | |decisions in the everyday delivery | | |of patient care. Students will need| | |to prioritize tasks in whatever | | |career choice they pursue. Using | | |math models will help students | | |analyze situations using logical | | |clear thinking. | | |You will have opportunity to | | |participate in activities in which | | |you will interpret between various | | |representations of mathematical | | |patterns and real-world phenomena. | | |Assess students’ math awareness as |Sample Dialogue for Teacher | |it relates to the CTE lesson. |This teaching strategy is used in | |Using the teaching strategy KWL |language arts to assess students’ | |(What do you Know? What do you |prior knowledge about a concept. | |Want to know? What did you Learn?)|Begin by asking the student “What | | |do you know about math models?” | |K |Record their responses in the | |W |chart on chalkboard, overhead or | |L |flip chart. | | |Then ask the students “What do you| | |want to know? Again write their | | |responses on the board or flip | | |chart in the chart. | | |After the lesson is over complete | | |the chart in the L column by | | |recording what they learned. Ask | | |the students “What did you learn | | |about math models?” | | |List Math Terms | | |Below are the basic terms used in | | |logic reasoning. It’s All About | | |Logic uses inductive and deductive| | |thinking to create and solve math | | |models. Logic can be subject of | | |study in its own right. We | | |provide teachers the following | | |terms to be able to talk to their | | |students about thinking strategies| | |we will utilize in the lessons to | | |follow. Our attempt is to provide| | |activities in math models that use| | |deductive and inductive logical | | |thinking without delving in depth | | |about these processes. | | |Logic | | |The study of laws governing valid | | |thinking patterns and of the | | |structure of statements Logical | | |thinking uses inductive and | | |deductive thinking to make | | |inferences to support valid | | |arguments. (Nichols/Schwartz, p. | | |232) | | |Inferences | | |A conclusion that logically | | |follows from premises. Commonly an| | |inference can be found from two | | |premises, e.g., All men are mortal| | |(major premise). Fernando is a man| | |(minor premise). Fernando is | | |mortal (inference, conclusion) | | |(Nichols/Schwartz, p. 202). | | |Deductive Thinking: | |Brainstorm with students a summary |To “deduce” is to reason from | |table of inductive and deductive |known facts.

Starting with | |between the two types of thinking. |true statements and demonstrating | | |other statements follow logically | |Inductive Thinking |from these truths is to reason | |Deductive Thinking |deductively. | | |Inductive Thinking: | | |Inductive thinking is to reason | | |what has happened before will | | |happen again. Observing data, | | |recognizing patterns, and making | | |conjectures (guesses) from these | | |observations is inductive | | |thinking. Inductive reasoning is | | |the basis of the scientific | | |method. Scientists use | | |experimental data to look for | | |patterns that test a hypothesis. | | |Inductive thinking is a tool for | | |showing how patterns either | | |support or contradict a | | |hypothesis. | | |Answer Key: | | |Inductive Thinking | | |Deductive Thinking | | | | | |Starts with observations | | |Starts with true statements | | | | | |Assumption is that pattern will | | |continue (conjecture) | | |Facts logically point to true | | |statements using logic to reach a | | |conclusion. | | | | | |Conjecture may or may not be true | | |Conclusion must be true | | | | | |Use inductive thinking to make | | |educated guesses based on | | |observations of patterns | | |Use deductive thinking to follow | | |logic through | | | | | |Other student responses | | |Other student responses | | | | | |Examples of Inductive and | | |deductive reasoning are: | | |A PowerPoint is included for the | | |teacher’s use to introduce the | | |following math model terms and use| | |as an introduction to the lesson, | | |if so desired. | | | | | |Patterns enable students to | | |describe and understand the | | |physical world and to make | | |informed predictions. | | |Students should use mathematical | | |models of patterns to make | | |inferences, predictions and | | |decisions | | |A model is a representation of a | | |pattern or relationship used to | | |simplify a situation by focusing | | |on selected aspects of the | | |situation.

Over five |# Children | |nights (Thursday through Monday), |Children’s Names | |he sat for five families | | |(including the Cerrones), each |Thurs. | |with a different number of |Montenero | |children (from one to five). For |3 | |each night, determine the family |Sheila, Victoria, Walt | |he sat for, the number of children| | |in that family, and their names. |Fri. | |The Jawalul’s have one more child |O’Neill | |than Brandon’s family. |4 | |Evan babysat for the Montenegro’s |Brandon, Greg, Harriet, Isaac | |two days before he babysat for | | |Tim’s family. |Sat. | |The O’Neill family has three more |Jawalul | |children than Joel’s family. |5 | |The family for whom Evan babysat |Angela, Luther, Mark, Polly, Tim | |on Saturday has at least two | | |girls. |Sun. | |He looked after Shayla at least |Rolchevski | |two days before he minded Luther. |2 | |The Rolchevskis have one more |Cindy, Emily | |child than the family for whom | | |Evan babysat on Monday. |Mon. | |Harriet’s family has more children|Cerrone | |than Cindy’s family. |1 | |Evan babysat for the Jawaluls on |Joel | |either Saturday or Sunday. | | |Angela has at least one brother | | |and at least one sister. | | |Emily and her sister are the only | | |two children Evan looked after on | | |Sunday evening. | | |Mark’s last name is either | | |Rolchevski or Jawalul. | | |Isaac has more siblings than Walt.| | |Evan watched Polly on Thursday or | | |Saturday. |Logic Reasoning: | |He babysat for Victoria’s family |Emily & her sister are the only | |before he sat for Greg’s. |two children Evan babysat on Sun.| |Day |(10). Joe’s family doesn’t have | |Family Name |3, 4, or 5 children (3), so he is| |# Children |an only child. | |Children’s Names |Brandon’s family can be the third| | |in our enumeration. He isn’t one | | |of five children (1). If he were | | |one of three, there would be 4 | | |Jawalul children (1). However, | | |there’d also be 4 O’Neill | | |children (3), so we’d have a | | |contradiction (intro). Thus, | | |Brandon is one of 4 children (see| | |above). His last name is O’Neill | | |(3), and there are 5 Jawaluls | | |(1). | | | | | |Evan babysat for the Jawaluls on | | |Sat. (8). Because the Jawaluls | | |and O’Neills have 5 & 4 children,| | |respectively, the family that | | |Evan sat for on Mon. doesn’t | | |include exactly 3 or 4 children | | |(6); this family has one child, | | |since day or last name eliminates| | |the others. The Rolchevskis are | | |the family with 2 children (6). | | |The family he worked for on Mon. | | |isn’t the Monteneros (2); it’s | | |the Cerrones (Intro), and, by | | |elimination, there are 3 | | |Montenero children. Since Tim | | |isn’t one of the two Rolchevski | | |children (see above), Evan didn’t| | |sit for the Monteneros on Fri. | | |(2); he sat for the O’Neills on | | |Fri., and, by elimination, he sat| | |for the Monteneros on Thurs. | | | | | |Tim is one of the 5 Jawalul | | |children (2 & above), as is Mark | | |(11 & above). Evan didn’t | | |babysit Luther on Sun. or Mon. | | |(see above), nor did he babysit | | |Luther on Thurs. or Fri. (5); | | |Luther is another of the Jawalul | | |children, and Shayla is one of | | |the Monteneros (5). | | |Isaac isn’t one of three children| | |(12 & above) & he isn’t a Jawalul| | |(4 & above), so he’s an O’Neill. | | |Walt is a Montenero (12 & above).| | |Evan didn’t watch Greg on Thurs.| | |(14) or Sat. (4 & above). Evan | | |didn’t watch Greg on Thurs. (14) | | |or Sat. (4 & above); Greg is an | | |O’Neill (see above). Victoria is | | |the final Montenero child (14). | | | | | |Emily’s sister (see above) isn’t | | |Harriet (7), Angela (9), or Polly| | |(13); she’s Cindy. Since at most | | |one O’Neill child is a girl (see | | |above), Angela isn’t an O’Neill | | |(9); she’s a Jawalul. | | |Polly is the final Jawalul (13). | | |By elimination, Harriet’s last | | |name is O’Neill. | |EXAMPLE 3 – ER Triage |Distribute Student Worksheet N | |Give the following patient |(Rated Intermediate). | |sCNArios to students. | | |Read or have students read the |Example 3 is the culminating | |following: |assessment for the lesson.
