I first had a formal logic class in high school, which focused more on the language aspect of logic than the mathematical side of it. As part of the series of classes I took in discrete math at Caltech, there was an entire term dedicated to the math of logic, how to manipulate syllogisms, relationships, and other kinds of logical statements with mathematical precision. This in turn helped me tutor proof-based subjects such as geometry. Hi, my name is Grant. I graduated from the California Institute of Technology in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied and Computational Math. After [more]

I was a philosophy minor, and as such practiced constructing logical arguments. Additionally, I took a formal logic class in which the teacher recommended I tutor other students in the class, a discrete mathematical class to study mathematical logic, and I've had some experience with electrical logic constructions used for my physics research and classes. I recently graduated Muhlenberg College with a degree in physics with multiple research experiences including working at Brookhaven National Laboratory and the University of Illinois studying nuclear physics and using the Muhlenberg telescop [more]

In obtaining my BS in mathematics, I was required to complete a "transition to higher math" course. This course included the basic concepts of logic, stressing those necessary to do mathematical proofs. In completing my master's degree in math (Binghamton University), as well as in PhD courses I have taken at Penn State and Binghamton U, I have continued to put these concepts of logic into practice. In addition, I have taught many aspects of logic in college courses on Discrete Math (at Penn State Wilkes-Barre) and Finite Math (at Penn State University Park) These courses included basic pr [more]

Considering I am a math teacher which deeply relies on logic and language I am definitely qualified for this. During the process of earning my mathematics degree I excelled in three logic courses, one of which was a 300 level course. Before reading about my background, I would like you to have an idea about my approach during sessions: 1) Discuss goals and expectations of both parents and students. 2) Discuss communication between parents and teachers in hopes of extending lines of communication between myself and the teac [more]

In my Engineering career as programmer, hardware designer, and systems integrator, I used all aspects of logic on a daily basis. A related Engineering course I have taken at Rutgers is called "Logic Design", and applies the functions 'AND', 'OR', 'XOR', 'NAND', 'NOR', etc. From a science/engineering point of view, computer programs and digital devices use logic to produce an output based on a set of inputs. Logic controls the "path of operations" through a running program or application, and is usually based on a set of rules. A simple example of the logic I have implemented using di [more]

I have taken the course in Penn State and it is on my official transcript. I have also received a 98% in the course. The class is CMPSC 360, or Discrete Mathematics. Hello, I'm Vishnu! I'm a sophomore in college attending Penn State with a planned double major in Computer Science and Statistics. Mathematics and computer science are and will always be my favorite subjects to both teach and learn more about. Because I am still taking courses and learning, I know exactly what makes me learn best, and therefore know how to teach difficult material to confused students. In high school I graduate [more]

I was introduced to logic in high school as part of an Honors Finite Math course. We studied Boolean algebra, truth tables, and propositional logic, using the textbook by Seymour Lipschutz. As an undergraduate I took four logic courses---every one that was available at the University of Delaware. Those were Symbolic Logic, Modal and Many-valued Logics, Mathematical Logic, and Critical Thinking. I have read numerous books on logic, including Godel, Escher, Bach by Douglas Hofstadter and many by logician Raymond Smullyan. I have written and published prize-winning software in Maple for solving [more]

I have taken courses in Predicate and Propositional Logic and received A's in both. I have also taken mathematics and computer science classes in which principles of logic are both learned and reinforced (such as computer science I, introductory mathematical reasoning, differential geometry, abstract algebra I and II, and discrete mathematics). I am proficient with sentential connectives, truth tables, tautologies, equivalence principles, rules of inference, indirect proofs, quantifiers, bound and free variables, elementary set theory, and direct and formal proofs.

Also, in the Foundations of math class I teach at Reading Area Community College is a unit on symbolic logic. I added this unit to the class I teach at Berks Catholic as well. We use Venn diagrams and prove arguments valid as well. I love Math! I teach at the university level, community college, and in a high school. I have taught math online, on TV and for SAT/ACT Prep classes. I enjoy seeing the "aha" moment in a student when he/she clearly understands a concept. To put it simply, I believe that Math is Fun! Teaching is an art, a gift, and a privilege. My experience is an asset to my [more]

I have served as a teaching assistant for Logic & Formal Reasoning at the University of Pennsylvania. I have also taken a course in symbolic logic and three courses in modern mathematical logic. I am a doctoral student in philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. I received a B.A. in Philosophy and Humanities from Villanova University (2014) and completed the post-baccalaureate program in Classical Studies at Penn (2015). While I specialize in ancient philosophy, I am a 'generalist' by temperament. I always enjoy the opportunity to work with students in any area of philosophy or related fi [more]
