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]

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]

I have nine years of experience teaching logic at the high school level. I have a bachelor's degree and a Master of Arts in Teaching in secondary mathematics education from Miami University in Oxford, OH. I have developed lessons and learning activities directly related to logic to the point where I feel I could probably teach an entire semester course on the subject. I have 11 years of teaching experience at the high school and college levels. During the summers, I have tutored students of all ages (8+) through Mathnasium Tutoring Facility. During the school year, I have tutored my own studen [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]

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]

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]

I have 5+ years of teaching experience at the college and community college levels. Additionally, I have over 10 years experience tutoring mathematics at all levels. My experience includes teaching of Logic. I have a Master's degree in Mathematics and over five years experience teaching Mathematics at the community college and college level. I have taught courses ranging from Intermediate Algebra through Calculus, Discrete Mathematics, and Statistics. ... [more]

I immediately tested into an undergraduate/graduate level logic course, in which I received an A, and helped other students. I also have done independent research in the field of multivalued propositional logic, using algebraic Geometry. I spent my undergraduate career working with the tutoring and academic success center at Cleveland state, and the math (only) tutoring center through the math department. I found, like many others, that it is a profoundly rewarding experience. My philosophy is simple, 'understanding is knowing what questions to ask'. Thus, you're better equipped for dealing wi [more]

I've been working on proof based classes for 3 years. Logic is one of the basic foundation for higher math. I have straight A's in all my proof based classes. I currently tutor upper division math at CSUN in the math department. And I've been tutoring for 2 years now and logical arguments are always used. Hello, my name is David and I hold a Bachelor's degree in Pure and Applied Mathematics along with a Single Subject Credential in Secondary Mathematics from California State University, Northridge. I am currently working on my Ph.D. in Biostatistics at The Ohio State University. I want to be [more]

Formal logic is fundamental to many concepts in Computer Science and programming, which are my specialties. I have written contributions to a lesson in formal logic for a Computer Science course, and I received an A in my Introduction to Logic course in college. Later in college, I tutored several friends taking a similar (although more advanced) formal logic course. I have loved computers since I was a child, and learned many programming languages through the years. While earning my degree in computer science, I spent a lot of time tutoring C, C++, Java, and C#. I have written professional t [more]
