## Which of the following strategies is similar to making inferences?

Making inferences is similar to using context in the sense that both involve drawing conclusions according to evidence that allows for implicit meanings. They also have to do with deduction and reasoning, and often lead the reader to have insights on what is being read.

**How do you teach students to make inferences?**

Teach students that good inferences use specific details from the text as well as their background knowledge. One strategy suggested by author and educator Kylene Beers that can be used to model inferring is called the “It says… I say…and so…” thought flow.

#### What is a valid inference in math?

Deduction is inference deriving logical conclusions from premises known or assumed to be true, with the laws of valid inference being studied in logic. Induction is inference from particular premises to a universal conclusion. Statistical inference uses mathematics to draw conclusions in the presence of uncertainty.

**What is the difference between inference and interpretation?**

An Inference is a conclusion we come to by analyzing Information. It is inductive reasoning: looking at facts and then making a conclusion from those facts. An Interpretation is an Inference from a specific Point of View. In a conclusion we find a solution to the Question at Issue.

## Why do we use inferences?

Observations occur when we can see something happening. In contrast, inferences are what we figure out based on an experience. Helping students understand when information is implied, or not directly stated, will improve their skill in drawing conclusions and making inferences.
