Introduction to Mathematical Logic-College Mathematics
What you'll learn
- You will learn the introduction to Mathematical Reasoning and Logic.
- Learn about the laws of logic, truth tables and more
- Get acquainted with the concept of NAND and NOR
- Learn about quantifiers and laws of inference
- Basic knowledge of mathematics
Hi, I am Suman Mathews, math educator. I hope to help you understand Mathematical Logic, which is an easy, yet ,tricky part of Discrete Mathematics which is also part of College Mathematics. I can help you understand College Mathematics by breaking down complex topics into bite sized lectures.
Mathematical Logic is extensively used in Computer Science. The course introduces you to basic terminology of Logic. You'll learn about negation, conjunction, disjunction, implication, bi conditional and how to calculate the truth tables for each.
Learn about the laws of Logic next. You'll also come to understand the difference between a tautology and a contradiction. Realise how important the laws of logic are when it comes to problem solving.
You'll be introduced to the laws of Duality and the concept of NAND and NOR. How NAND and NOR are inverses of each other is also explained. The course proceeds to explain the laws of inference.
Understand the terms
Modus Tollens and more.
Use these and more, to test the validity of a statement. You'll also be introduced to quantifiers, open statements and how to calculate the truth value of an open statement. You are introduced to the rules of Logic which connect universal and existential quantifiers.
I hope this course helps you. Would you care to help any of your fellow students who need help in Logic, by sharing details of this course. Once again, thank you and hoping to see you in the course.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Who this course is for:
- Computer Science students, mathematics students at the college level
I have been a mathematics educator for over 25 years teaching mathematics both at the high school and graduate level. Presenting a set of courses on Class 11 and 12 maths and College maths.
These courses are designed to help you understand the basic nuances of Mathematics. Each topic in mathematics is like a language which makes sense, only if it is understood. My mission in each of these courses is to help any student understand the subject better and develop a liking for Mathematics.
The courses are self explanatory. A lot of importance is given to problem solving
You can contact me for any feedback about course topics. I would love to hear from you!
