Introduction to Logic (Geometry Unit 2)
- Computer that plays audio/video files
- Program to open PDFs
This unit is the first in a High School Geometry curriculum. It teaches basic logical concepts so that they can be applied to geometric concepts later on. It can be taken by traditional high school students as well as High School Equivalency (HSE) students who are learning about geometric topics for their equivalency exams (GED, TASC, and/or HiSET).Topics include:
(1) Conjectures and Counterexamples
(2) Symbolic Logic
(3) Truth Tables
(4) Conditional Statements
(5) Related Conditional Statements
(6) Deductive Reasoning
Each section has at least one related video, a video quiz, and a section quiz. The video quiz is to be taken along with or shortly after watching the video. The section quiz is to be taken after. To supplement the course, you can use any textbook.
This course should take approximately five to ten hours to complete.
Who this course is for:
- This course is designed for students who are interested in learning the material. I have developed a similar course for instructors looking to use my videos to teach their students, but that course has additional instructor information.
- High School Geometry Students
- HSE/GED Students Studying Geometry
