For example, suppose your history teacher likes to give “surprise” quizzes. You notice that, for the first four chapters of the book, she gave a quiz the day after she covered the third lesson. Based on the pattern in your observations, you might generalize that you will have a quiz after the third lesson of every chapter. A generalization based on inductive reasoning is called a conjecture.
