How to Judge Truth Values of Compound Sentences? Compound sentences, as the phrase, suggests deals with two or more sentences combined together by the AND operator. When two simple sentences, p and q, are joined in a conjunction statement, both sentences should be satisfied. For example, Joe eats fries, and Maria drinks soda. Here, both sentences work collaboratively with each other. Now, both of these statements need to be true, and if they aren’t, then the compound sentences will not become true. These worksheets help students understate the truth value of various compound sentences.

Homework Sheets

All of the sentence are mathematical based sentences.

  • Homework 1 - We have a compound sentence here. That means that it has two or more parts that must both be true in order for the statement to be deemed true.
  • Homework 2 - Since both facts are true, the entire sentence is true.
  • Homework 3 - If 6 and 8 are even, then tigers swim.

Practice Worksheets

Tigers fly? That's what students told me the second I handed them these!

  • Practice 1 - Now let's look at both statements and determine their individual truth value.
  • Practice 2 - Since a portion of the compound sentence is false, the entire sentence is false.
  • Practice 3 - If 5 and 7 are odd, then shoes run.

Math Skill Quizzes

I used short sentences here to make sure the wording didn't get in the way.

  • Quiz 1 - 5 + 3 = 8 and 6 is a prime number.
  • Quiz 2 - Determine the truth value of the statement: 7 - 3 = 4 and 2 is an even number.
  • Quiz 3 - Since both facts are true, the entire sentence is true.
