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 the science of evaluating and classifying statement forms. I have a broad understanding of logic and its many branches: Symbolic logic (of language), Programming logic, and Mathematical logic (prepositions, quantifiers, proofs, etc.) I have taken many courses that have given me an appreciation for the foundations of logic including: Introduction to Logic, Computer Programming, Discrete Math, and Numbers and Proof. I have also taken many advanced math courses that involve more detailed methods of proof including Abstract Algebra, Modern Geometry, Calculus III, and Complex Analysis. [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]

Logic is a formal language used in reasoning. It is fundamental to the understanding of upper level and abstract mathematics, as well as any valid and well-reasoned argument. I have taken logic classes in high school and college, making exceptional grades, and I have used logic in many of my own upper level math classes. Hello! I'm Olivia and I'm a statistics graduate student with a Bachelor of Science in math. Math is the most useful subject. It can be applied to nearly any field and provides a lot of opportunities for those who are willing to learn it. Even though my focus has shifted to sta [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]

Experienced with truth tables, logical operators, and algebraic models dealing with logic. I have also independently studied Aristotelian logic to some extent. I would certainly be able to assist undergraduate math students in any algebra, geometry, statistics, or beginning logic course. On October 7, 2013, I completed my PhD in Mathematics and Science Education. My accomplishment demonstrates that it is possible to overcome life's obstacles. As a teenager, I hated math and struggled with it during my middle and high school years. My father, on the other hand, being a great mathematician, moti [more]

I have a Master's degree in Mathematics from the University of South Florida. I have taught multi-subject courses that include logic (such as Topics in Mathematics) at Hillsborough Community College, where I taught from 2002 to 2015. I have also taught formal logic as part of a Critical Thinking course for Colorado Technical University, where I currently teach online. I enjoy teaching and tutoring mathematics and I love to see my students succeed! With many years of experience teaching both in the classroom and tutoring, I know how students think. I help students understand the concepts and [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 received a Secondary Education degree with majors in both Mathematics and English. Both subjects require strong logic abilities. I have years of experience teaching logical argument and persuasion in college English writing classes and I also have experience tutoring students in "symbolic logic shortcuts" to help improve scores for the GRE Analytic section. I taught college English full-time for several years in Alabama and received multiple department and university commendations for my teaching, but now have switched to teaching high school Algebra 2 in Lexington, KY. In 2004, I received [more]

I taught approximately twelve classes in symbolic logic and critical thinking while a graduate student at the University of Georgia, and symbolic logic was my special area of study while a philosophy major. The topic of my Master's thesis concerned C.S. Peirce's Existential Graphs (a graphical logic system that looks something like Venn diagrams). I have tutored symbolic logic since 1986. I have been tutoring both high school and college students for 30 years. As a graduate student at the University of Georgia, I taught symbolic logic four times. Between 2009-2017 I tutored student athletes [more]
