Has anyone ever been told to make sure “You better mind your p’s and q’s?” or “Dot your i’s and cross your t’s?” Well, we were making sure to mind our p’s and q’s today for a couple of reasons.
The first reason was because Geometry talked A LOT about p’s and q’s today in the form of conditional statements and their different variants. We have the traditional “If p, then q.” Then, we have the converse “If q, then p.” Next, we have the inverse “If not p, then not q.” Lastly, we have the contrapositive “If not q, then not p.” So, we had to know what our hypothesis was and what our conclusion was in the original conditional statement and then move those around like crazy.
The second reason was because Algebra II had a test today. So, they had to bring their A-game! New unit starts tomorrow. Stay tuned.
