Deductive and Inductive Logic

In your own words, explain the difference between deductive and inductive logic.

There are two distinct methods of reasoning namely the inductive and deductive approaches. Inductive reasoning is the opposite of deductive logic. Inductive logic makes broad generalisations from specific observations, whereas deductive logic is the process of logic from the being general to becoming more specific.

What are the problems with each of these kinds of logic and what we can do to overcome some of these problems?

The problems with each of the deductive and inductive logic are that the methods of these are too general and are not backed up with any evidence or support. Deductive logic is based on the truth and inductive logic may not be the truth on everything.

Defining Math

Math is a something that we use and can apply it to everyday and everywhere that shows a value or quantity which could be applied to different applications. Patterns and relationships occur everywhere in nature but it also needs quantity to happen. It is split into two part, pure mathematics and applied mathematics. In pure mathematics, it is the study of mathematical concepts of application outside mathematics. Pure mathematics applies to me such as taking Math, Physics, Visual Arts and Economics class. There are foundations to mathematics and which involves with rules, logics and theories and combining them together it is how pure mathematics works.

The Acquisition of Knowledge

When looking at an artwork, we will experience sense perception, emotions, reasons, and past memories. We will first go through our sense perception of the artwork. We try to hear or see or feel about the artwork to to get any feeling or senses first then we go into emotions and reasoning. For emotions, we think about the aesthetics or the appeal of the artwork and then giving a reason to against the rationality. Finally we think back our memory and try to think of things that we relate to ourself or any experiences that are related to the artwork.

Natural Science – Miasma Theory

What is it about this RLS that might cause your TOK Radar to go off? (TOK Radar)

– How do we know that we have reach to a point that we cannot disprove it?

– Can we ever get the ultimate truth and cannot be disproven?

– Can there be another better way to investigate on natural science apart from using the scientific method?

– How do we know that the technology used can give us the most accurate data?

Why is this an important question to ask? (Significance)

“Is it inevitable that the historical development of the natural science has lead us to our current understanding of the world?”

The question leads to both past history and in the future. If we understand and know the way science has developed in the past history we can develop further in our current understanding of the world as we base on past knowledge. Also in the scientific method we take multiple test and disprove and prove it again.

What is the connection between the RLS and KQ? (Link)

The connection between the RLS and KQ is the past history which was about the Miasma Theory. Miasma Theory was developed before and the KQ is linking back to the theory that was created. Another connection is that Miasma Theory has continued to be built until now to our current understanding of the world. There have been few different people who have try to prove

Methodology of Natural Sciences

“At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes – an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the ideas, old and new. This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense.” – Carl Sagan

In what ways does this quote help us understand the methodology in Natural Science?

The methodology in Natural Science is used when conducting researches and test. The quote helps us understand that we follow the methodology so that we could find the conclusion. The truth is that there will be multiples of methodology and each time there will be an improvement until it can’t be refuted and can’t prove the hypothesis to be incorrect.

What is Natural Sciences?

Natural Science is the study of science which deals with the physical world such physics, chemistry, geology, biology and does not include with abstract or theoretical sciences, as mathematics or philosophy.

1. How has your definition or scope of Natural Science changed?

The way I define scope or Natural Sciences has changed as I previously thought that Natural Sciences could pretty much include everything but now I understand that it only deal with the physical world such as physics, chemistry, geology, biology.

2. What territories does the Natural Sciences try to map?

Natural Sciences tries to map out the physical world of what are able to observe and explore. It is about how the world works by using physics, chemistry, geology, biology.

3. What kind of problem is this ‘map’ helping us solve?

The kind of problems that this ‘map’ can help us solve are the things that happened in the physical world and it is why the things we have exist.

4. What kinds of question does the Natural Science provide answers to?

The kinds of questions that Natural Science provides answers are on how the world works and mostly based on nature and not by human science.

Personal and Shared Knowledge

Define personal and shared knowledge.

Personal knowledge is something that you personally know about and experience about. Shared knowledge would be more than one individual knowing the changes and evolves over the time or knowledge.

Discuss what is the difference between these types of knowledge.

Personal knowledge would be as an individual have experience and only a very small amount of people would know about it. Comparing to shared knowledge, a large amount of people understands that knowledge.

Where is the difference not as clear?

The part that is different is that you know about your on personal knowledge the best and may not understand shared knowledge as best as other people will understand. When you also share your own personal knowledge, it maybe hard to understand as you know the best and other people may not have experience what you have experience before. Such as being poor, there are people that were born being poor and there are people that became poor mid way and both type of people would not have the same experience but may have some common experiences.

TOK Thoughts

What are the key aims of TOK?

TOK is to help us as students to understand the reason behind knowledge where there could be different perspective in it.

What is the map metaphor? (explanation on next slide)

The map metaphor is a simplify version comparing to the actual map. There are things that are left out such as on the MTR map which only shows locations which the MTR will go to.

What are the strengths to knowledge being a simplification of the world?

Simplification of the world could be a good thing because it would be easier to understand certain things, it is much like a model of the world.

What are the weakness to knowledge being a simplification of the world?

Simplification of the world may not always be a good things because it is too simplified there maybe not chances to go in depth understanding of the world.

Will we ever have a full understanding of the real world?

Have a full understanding of the real world will depend on different things because there are some places or things that we will not have full understanding of what it really is. It maybe possible to have full understanding of the real world, but it would take time and future technology to figure out all of the unknown mysteries.

Grade 10 End of Year Service As Action

How did you become more aware of your own strengths and areas for growth?

After the Caritas Jockey Club Integrated Service For Young People, I helped the young kids with their school work. I developed international-mindedness because I could transfer this experience and also allow the next generation to volunteer in Caritas Jockey Club Integrated Service For Young People. There is also a booklet which if you reach 150 hours there will a award for achieving.

How did you consider the ethical implications of your actions?

After the Caritas Jockey Club Integrated Service For Young People, I helped the young kids with their school work. I do feel that sometimes it does really help the young kids understand their work better and which it may affect their future in school.
