Introduction to Logic is an introduction to Logic from a computational perspective. It shows how to encode information in the form of logical sentences; it shows how to reason with information in this form; and it provides an overview of logic technology and its applications - in mathematics, science, engineering, business, law, and so forth.

The course was originally designed for use at the college level. However, experience has shown that it works for secondary school students as well, and it can be used at the start of graduate school for those who have not yet seen the material.

There are just two prerequisites. The course presumes that the student understands sets and set operations, such as union, intersection, and so forth. It also presumes that the student is comfortable with symbolic manipulation, as used, for example, in solving high-school algebra problems. Nothing else is required.

All of the materials for the course are accessible via the tabs at the top of this page. There are links to notes, interactive exercises, a glossary, some extras, various logic puzzles, and some online tools. Click on the Lessons tab to get started. Do the interactive exercises. Use the glossary to look up words. Look at the extras and puzzles as you go long. And use the tools as appropriate.
