I was an Applied Math major and was required to take Logic as a precursor to Discrete Math. I received a 100% in this course, have used the material in Discrete Math and Abstract Algebra, and have provided corrections to the answers of our classroom text to the instructor. I use this material when tutoring Discrete Math and Abstract Algebra. I have a degree in Applied Mathematics from Southern New Hampshire University and have been a tutor for 20 years, specializing in standardized tests, high school and college math, high school science, college physics, and tutoring many other subjects inclu [more]

I studied theoretical mathematics and philosophy at MIT and Harvard, where I specialized in the philosophy of logic, math, science, and language. I've taught logic for more than ten years, including basic courses in critical thinking, standard courses on propositional and predicate logic, and advanced courses on metalogic (including Godel's theorems) and the history and philosophy of logic. I provide rigorous, high-level academic tutoring, test preparation, and enrichment for high school, college, and graduate students. I have ten years and thousands of hours of experience with students and pr [more]

I have course background and experience in formal logic, as well as mathematical logic, metamathematics, logic in natural-language argumentation, and related topics in philosophy and computer science. From programming and teaching computer logic, I know how to break down logical puzzles into comprehensible pieces. I am aware of classic paradoxes and problems that students at any level can find enjoyable and challenging test cases for their facilities. I am a writer, programmer, and experienced mentor who loves teaching. Harvard College AB in Physics and Philosophy, United States Presidential S [more]

All of proof-based mathematics lies atop of first order logic, that is, propositional logic with predicates, and quantifiers. This language has become natural to me in the course of earning two B.S. degrees in Math and Physics. I successfully completed the most difficult logic and discrete math class available at my university, and now tutor other pure math majors taking the same course. Logic courses are often taught in the context of discrete structures, the theory of computation, or algebra and number theory. My experience in these tangential subjects helps students to succeed in their part [more]

Logic in Mathematics involves formal languages used to construct proofs. It is understanding sets and functions as well as a full comprehension of the Number System, distinguishing the difference between these sets of numbers: Integers, Rational Numbers, Real Numbers, Irrational Numbers, Complex Numbers and Natural Numbers, and understanding which set is applicable to which problem. I graduated from Bridgewater as a math major and among my course load was Analysis which covered Logic, Proofs, Sets and Functions, the Number System, Sequences, Continuity and the Derivative.

I took mathematical logic during my undergraduate education. The topics included boolean algebra, theorem proving via rules of inference, and later, equation logic. Part of the curriculum revolved around proving certain major results, including the completeness theorem for boolean algebra, and the compactness theorem. I helped a number of students with solving logic problems. I emphasize the fact that practicing logic strengthens one's ability to think in many different school disciplines. I also mention that solving many puzzles, which many of us like doing in our spare time, requires logical [more]

I was enrolled for two years in a math graduate program in logic. As an undergraduate I majored in philosophy, with an emphasis on logic. I scored perfect on the GRE quantitative reasoning test. I am driven by the challenge of helping every student to succeed. Most recently I have done this at the secondary level as a public charter school teacher. Prior to that, alongside my own doctoral work in mathematics, I taught and assistant-taught college-level math classes, from remedial Calculus to Multivariate Calculus. Helping students discover math themselves is the subject of the PROMYS program [more]

Logic is the study of the relationship betwen words and concepts. Exploration begins with understanding the basic ways concepts interact with a special focus on "if, then" statements. Once this is mastered, we begin exploring how mathematics and the natural sciences "reason logically" and how our basic understandings of natural laws develop from basic relationships between words and objects. Hello, my name is Roger H. I have successfully tutored high, middle, and elementary school students in many subjects: Math through calculus History (including US history, Western Civ, and Modern Euro [more]

I have taught logic at several local colleges and universities. At Northeastern University, I taught it in both the Philosophy Department and the Computer Science Department, with the different emphases required for the very different audiences. My dissertation involved the use of formal logic to clarify subtle issues of linguistic semantics. My published research also involves the use of formal logic in artificial intelligence and natural language processing. Certified teacher. 30 years experience. MIT alumnus.

I have been exposed to logical concepts my entire life, beginning with logic puzzles that I would work on for fun outside of school. However, my first formal exposure to logic was in my 8th grade Algebra I class, where I first learned about propositional logic, including truth tables, Boolean algebra (negation/and/or/if-then/if-and-only-if), and logical laws (contradiction, contrapositive, modus ponens, modus tollens, syllogism, De Morgan's laws, etc.). In my senior year of college, I took a Mathematical Logic course with a well-known logician, and earned a B+. In this class, I learned about [more]
