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 courses on formal logic and mathematical logic as an undergraduate, and have tutored predicate calculus and formal logic as well. Some of my methods include helping define logic in more concrete terms for students who may have trouble with abstract concepts, as well as illustrating numerous examples of the laws of logic, types of reasoning, and inductive proofs to help students get a feel for the material. By working from the ground up, and building a students reasoning first through simple logical statements, logical connectives, and quantifiers, I am able to help my students und [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]

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]

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]

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]

I studied foundations of math including logic and set theory when I was a math graduate student. Topics I can teach include logical operators (and, or, not, nor, implication), syllogisms, truth tables, and both propositional and predicate calculus. I started tutoring when I was a graduate student in mathematics at the University of Michigan. I tutored on an individual basis, and also for the Athletic Department, working with members of the football and baseball teams. I have 40 years experience applying mathematics in engineering and business. Employers have included General Electric and Lo [more]

My undergraduate degree program required frequent usage of logic. In addition, essentially all advanced mathematics and physics courses use mathematical logic frequently. I have 5+ years of experience both analyzing and constructing mathematical proofs. I am a post-baccalaureate student at The University of Pennsylvania. I have worked as a Mathematics tutor there for around 3 years. I graduated from St. John's College with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts, which breaks down into a double major in the History of Math and Science, and Philosophy, and a double major in Classical Studies and Com [more]

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 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 teaching, as I hav [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]
