Logic is the art of reasoning well--of learning to think God's thoughts after him. In this book, James Nance builds on the foundation of Introductory Logic for Christian and Home Schools to help students explore the more challenging terrain of formal, propositional logic.
Students will be introduced to the basics of propositional arguments; how to determine the validity of propositional arguments; how to write formal proofs; how to use the technique of 'truth trees' to determine consistency, self-contradiction, tautology, equivalence, and validity; how to apply such tools to arguments found in real life; and digital logic.
Organized into five units, each lesson is followed by an exercise; units conclude with a set of review questions and review exercises. Important words and concepts are bolded in the lesson, and symbols on the side of the page denote definitions, key points, and cautions.
This 3rd Edition was revised and updated in 2014, and features a new, clean, easy-to-read layout and includes a new lesson that teaches students to apply concepts to actual arguments and analyze chains of reasoning. A longer, optional unit (12 lessons) has been added on the topic of digital logic and covers the concepts of digital displays, binary numbers, and the design and simplification of digital logic circuits; a final project gives students an opportunity to design a complex circuit that covers a binary input to a decimal display output.
40 lessons, 355 perforated pages; consumable, non-reproducible workbook. NKJV Scripture used. 3rd Edition. Grades 9-12.
