Class Description:This class focuses on learning the apparatus of both ancient categorical logic and modern symbolic logic. We will practice some formal skills, such as Venn Diagrams and construction proofs. We will also examine less formal uses of logic, such as Aristotelian syllogisms used in legal argumentation and using modern logic to formally express and critique everyday arguments. While we won’t do any direct test prep, the skills covered have been shown to help boost scores on standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT.
