Logic with James B Nance

Learn Logic w/ Mr. Nance!

Ready to learn logic with me? Click HERE to register for online LOGIC for the 2016-2017 school year. This online course includes live instruction twice a week, plus virtual office hours!

LOGIC is divided into two semesters: Introductory Logic: The Fundamentals of Thinking Well, and Intermediate Logic: Mastering Propositional Arguments. Using the flipped classroom model, for each lesson students will read the lesson and watch the video, then work on the exercise. We will then meet together live for online recitations Monday/Thursday from 8:00-9:30 AM (PST), or Tuesday/Friday from 8:00-9:30 AM (PST), where we will discuss the lesson, correct any misunderstandings, and solidify our understanding of the concepts. And as a special bonus for students of this course, I make myself available for virtual office hours, where I answer students’ questions any time during regular work hours every weekday!

As a complete course in reasoning well, Introductory Logic (fifth edition) teaches students how to define terms, make accurate statements, construct valid arguments, and detect fallacies. Intermediate Logic (third edition) will teach students how to analyze, prove, and apply propositional arguments.

This course is designed for students 13 years old to adults. Class sizes will be kept small, no more than 12 per session. Grades will be based on nine tests per semester.
