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]

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]

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 have studied logic as an integral part of my mathematics education. I feel this helps make me qualified to help students in the area of logic. I am a high school math teacher with experiencing teaching and tutoring Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. I have a BS in Mathematics from Ohio University and a Masters in Education. I can give you the attention and dedication you need to become successful in the math areas you want to become better in. We can work with your school curriculum and on other topics. I try my best to be flexible and available the days that work b [more]

I have been the primary instructor multiple times for the introductory and advanced logic courses taught in the Philosophy Department at the University of Maryland, College Park. While logic is not part of my personal research, I have done extensive graduate coursework and been involved in a number of research groups that have delved into advanced topics in logic that are both classic (e.g. Godel's incompleteness theorems, Frege's foundations of arithmetic) and cutting edge (e.g. epistemic game theory, nonmonotonic logic, formal models of legal reasoning). In my experience, even very advanced [more]

I am a certified K-8 teacher in mathematics. Many algebraic and abstract math problems, operational word problems, and geometry proofs/problems require the use of logic. I have a flexible approach to teaching how to use logic to solve math problems using strategies such as diagrams, pictures, list making, equations, and more. I teach math for deep conceptual understanding, which relies on the use of logic and not just the memorization of formulas and the ability to apply them. My teaching experience varies. I've been a public school classroom teacher for almost ten years, in both suburban and [more]

As a math major I have taken many courses which involve logic and also courses just on mathematical logic. I have also taken philosophy classes on logic as well. I work as an IP attorney in NY. I am a graduate of Rutgers who majored in Physics and Mathematics. I graduated from Emory Law School and specialized in intellectual property law. I have over 5 years of tutoring experience. I have also been a teacher at the Center For Talented Youth, through John Hopkins University, teaching rising 8th graders and high school students mathematical modeling. I have tutored at the college-level at t [more]

I was introduced to logic in high school as part of an Honors Finite Math course. We studied Boolean algebra, truth tables, and propositional logic, using the textbook by Seymour Lipschutz. As an undergraduate I took four logic courses---every one that was available at the University of Delaware. Those were Symbolic Logic, Modal and Many-valued Logics, Mathematical Logic, and Critical Thinking. I have read numerous books on logic, including Godel, Escher, Bach by Douglas Hofstadter and many by logician Raymond Smullyan. I have written and published prize-winning software in Maple for solving [more]

I have taken courses in Predicate and Propositional Logic and received A's in both. I have also taken mathematics and computer science classes in which principles of logic are both learned and reinforced (such as computer science I, introductory mathematical reasoning, differential geometry, abstract algebra I and II, and discrete mathematics). I am proficient with sentential connectives, truth tables, tautologies, equivalence principles, rules of inference, indirect proofs, quantifiers, bound and free variables, elementary set theory, and direct and formal proofs.

I took the course in college and passed with a B+. I was eventually offered the opportunity to teach the course. Logic is a course very similar to precalculus-calculus math courses which I am quite comfortable in. "Don't give up. Don't ever give up!" - Jimmy Valvano in his 1993 ESPY Speech Jimmy Valvano gave one of the most influential speeches in pop culture a mere eight weeks before he lost his battle with cancer. I reference back to this speech on a consistent basis to not only motivate myself but also those around me. Throughout high school I served on many positions while maintaining [more]
