Lets play dominoes!

           Yesterday in class we learned about Poof by Inductions. This proof technquie allows us to prove infinitely many statements. The key to this proof is to relate it to dominoes. Proof by induction is always preformed in two steps. The first step is the base case, in relationship to dominoes it is knocking down the first domino in the series. The second step in proof by induction is the inductive step. Think of this step as all the dominoes being lines up if one falls they all fall. To conclude when in doubt remember dominoes.
