Logic

In this semester course, students construct and evaluate arguments by connecting to real-life scenarios pertinent to their lives. These short scenarios “translate” new notions and terms into concepts that they can relate to. Using an internet platform, students complete interactive exercises and view videos that reinforce the content to become more logical thinkers and communicators. Laws of logic, the history of logic, and applied logic are the primary focuses. Students need to have a strong verbal and written background as a prerequisite since they are expected to translate verbal arguments to symbolic logic. Algebra II is a prerequisite for this course.
