Logic and reasoning

Module Overview

Originated by Prof. Felicia Megret

Deductive reasoning determines whether the truth of a conclusion can be determined for that rule. For example “when it rains, things outside get wet. The grass is outside, therefore, when it rains, the grass gets wet.” Mathematical logic and philosophical logic are commonly associated with this type of reasoning. There are other types of reasoning too, and in this module, we explore these and find out how ‘logic’ plays an important part in the everyday choices we make.

We will explore

  • Defining logic and reasoning
  • Understanding the importance of reasoning
  • Exploring class activities using logical thinking
  • Logic and reasoning in everyday life
  • Logic from other people’s point of view

This module includes

  • Lesson plan

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
