Formal logic doesn’t have to be intimidating. This carefully designed course covers formal logic for those who have not studied fallacies or syllogisms before, making it a strong foundation for learning to think well. Students learn how to properly define terms, form and interpret statements, compose valid syllogisms, identify fallacies, and much more. The easy-to-read layout includes plenty of margin notes, and exercises are given for each lesson. Also given are review questions and exercises for each unit. Recommended for the first half of the year with Intermediate Logic for the second half.
