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 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]

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]

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 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]

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]

Logic is something I use every day, while programming, while designing systems and flow charts, and in many other ways in industry as an engineer. However, I also have background in traditional logic. I was classically schooled, read many ancient writers, philosophers, and logician's works. I also took classes in formal and informal logic, and how to apply them in debate preparation, rhetoric, and writing. I recently received my BSE in bioengineering from UPenn. I have extensively tutored high school and middle students in math and science, as well as technical and career/admissions targe [more]

I have a degree in Philosophy, and I am a math teacher. I have taken three courses in logic, including philosophy of language which was about formal logic and the foundations of Mathematics. I have taught nature of mathematics at the college level, which includes a section on logic. I start by finding out where the students? weaknesses are, and then develop a method to cover the material in a meaningful and logical manner. I have over twenty years? experience in teaching and tutoring. I have taught mathematics, logic, economics, physics and chemistry. I use technology effectively to communicat [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]
