# Lesson 6 Claims and Conjectures Solidify Understanding

Conjectures are statements which are believed to be true based on the current data or evidence. However, they have not yet been proven or disproven. To move toward logical proof, true statements that properly build on one another, along with justifications for those statements, are needed. Based on the diagram in Figure 1, provide a justification for each statement.

Sometimes when creating a proof, it is useful to add additional segments to a diagram. Amelia is conjecturing

Based on the information in the statements or diagrams it is possible to make claims about what is likely true. The claims made are considered conjectures because they have not yet been proven or disproven. For each problem, use the diagram and statements to generate at least one conjecture about the quadrilateral. Attempt to conjecture about the most precise classification for the quadrilateral.
