Homework Help: math

Posted by michele on Wednesday, March 2, 2011 at 12:43pm.

While investigating the properties of parallelograms using a dynamic
geometry software program, a student notices that the diagonals of a
parallelogram seem to bisect each other. The student conjectures
that this statement is true for all parallelograms. Which of the
following would be the most reasonable next step for the student to
take to evaluate the validity of this conjecture? My chooses are as followed.
A. Try to find more examples supporting the conjecture.
B. Try to find a counterexample to the conjecture.
C. Try to prove the conjecture using mathematical induction.
D. Try to generalize the conjecture to apply to other
quadrilaterals.
