Logic is the study of good reasoning. This course will explore two important modes of reasoning: deduction and induction. We will use formal methods from sentential logic, including truth tables and proofs, to test for correct or 'valid' inferences. Common mistakes in reasoning (i.e., fallacies) will be examined, as well as language and scientific reasoning. Practical application in logic outside the classroom will be emphasized. ADVISORY: Eligible for English 1A.
