As part of my math major requirements, I took an upper-level course in mathematical logic as an elective and got an A. I only lost a fraction of a point on a midterm for not citing a theorem from lecture; otherwise, I would have gotten perfect score in the class. I love constructing formal proofs using a first order language and predicate calculus. Deducing that a statement is true as a consequence of the rules of inference applied to a set of axioms is most entertaining. I doubt most students go beyond truth tables and naive set theory, but I can help them out with those as well. [more]

Logic is nothing more than an application of the logical part of the brain. We can use symbols to represent not only what certain statements say but also can use other symbols to specify specific meanings, ex, using 'V' to represent an 'OR' situation as in 'it is raining OR is it sunny" After using these symbols, we can then apply the many rules of logic to determine the validity of one's conjectures. Sometimes we can determine a total truth - ie a tautology, and other time it will not be true, ie a contradiction. In many ways, this area of study is fairly easy; however, it does get a litt [more]

I have been teaching college level introduction to logic courses for 20 years. These courses include an analysis of argumentation, categorical logic, propositional logic, and natural deduction. I have taught students the basics of truth functional operators, the rules of inference for proving deductive argument valid, and the basic structure and rules of categorical logic. Thank you for visiting my profile. I am excited about helping you learn. I earned my BA in Telecommunications in 1991 and my Master's in Philosophy in 1995. Since then I have enjoyed connecting these two fields by teachi [more]

The symbolic logic basis to the Physical Sciences is rooted in Modus Ponens. Consider P /\ (P=>Q) =>Q. An hypothesis 'P' with the implication that 'Q' follows from 'P' then states that if 'P' has existence, and that existence implies a 'Q', then 'Q' necessarily follows. "it is raining outside" and if "It is raining outside" then "the sidewalks are wet". Reality: "It is raining outside, therefore "wet sidewalks" follows. As a degreed Master of Science student in both Pure and Applied Mathematics, my course work included proving theorems using the machinery of Symbolic Logic. This involved [more]

Among the favorite topics in high school algebra/geometry for a tutor with an MS degree in Applied Mathematics and Statistics, I can help mathematical students with tautologies and logic laws/proofs. I am motivated by the ability to see others understand aspects in life better. This takes hard work and dedication in order to ensure success on both ends. I truly enjoyed the positive impacts I made on students while teaching 2 semesters of pre-calculus/calculus recitation sections and tutoring mathematics for over 3 years. Creativity was expanded through my passion of sign language incorporation [more]

As a math education, I have taken many proof-based math classes. These include abstract algebra, hyperbolic geometry, real variables, and proofs itself. I have helped students with True/False tables, logic statements and strings, and Boolean algebra. I can also help students learn how to efficiently use existential and universal quantifiers. I love to learn, and I love to teach even more. I became a tutor at a community college in 2012. Working at a community college, I realize and understand that most students struggle to make time for studying. As a result, I am very flexible. I graduated [more]

Math majors are required to take a class called Methods of Proof. The curriculum of this class includes a section on logical statements, truth tables, etc. This class, along with the entirety of upper division math curriculum, focuses on logical processes and proof based problem solving. I have been tutoring math for over five years, most recently as a tutor for Cal Poly's math department. My favorite part of any tutoring session is the buildup to the "Aha!" moment. I believe that building up to that moment is the most important, as it represents the learning process. If a student excels in th [more]

I have a B.S. in pure mathematics from Indiana University with a GPA of 3.6/4.0. One class that I took was P105: Logic and Reasoning. It's a Philosophy class, instead of a math class, but there you go. It's a class in college-level formal logic. I got an A. I love math. I love teaching it. I find it intrinsically satisfying to see the light come on in a student's eyes. My first math lesson that I taught was when I was 5. My neighbor, still in diapers, kept skipping 4 when counting from 1 to 10. I worked with him until he could get all 10 numbers in a row, and match them up with his [more]

I find programming on a computer and designing a digital circuits to use the logic. Logic is a system or set of principles underlying the arrangements of elements in a computer or electronic device so as to perform a specified task. I have taken Logic and Computer Design Fundamentals during my graduate level courses. I have taken Digital Design Principle & Practices that included the study of combinational logic design principles during my undergraduate courses. I believe that my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering and graduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering has prepar [more]
