Category Description for Introductory Logic - The Fundamentals of Thinking Well
Every person should have a course in logic at some point. It is important for children to be prepared to argue logically, defend their positions, and spot fallacies. The only thing more frustrating than knowing your opponent is wrong is to have to combat a well-constructed, logical argument when you are unable. There is no real "defense" against sound logic and thinking. Many logic books are written at too high a level for younger students to comprehend. Canon Press says this course is written for "primary and secondary students." Cathy Duffy, however, says "the content is beyond typical high-school-level material." I have looked through this book and found it simpler to use and understand than the course I had in high school. I would hope that my 12 year olds could handle it without much difficulty. It is a complete and fairly rigorous course, and is from a Christian perspective. The course builds from basic to more complex, giving students the tools they need, with good examples along the way. Exercises teach logical statements, truth and validity, universals and particulars, categorized relationships, syllogism, logical fallacy, symbolic logic, and much more. The newest version of the course includes 36 lessons (with 39 consumable exercises). Definitions of important terms, key points, and caution signs regarding common errors are set apart in the margins of the text. The book begins with a section on defining terms, which lays the foundation for the lessons that follow. The book has a new cover, perfect binding, and has perforated exercise pages for easy removal. The Teacher's Edition includes daily lesson schedules; answers to all exercises, review questions, quizzes and tests; the entire content of the Student Text; and detailed daily lesson plans. The DVD Set includes lessons from Jim Nance from Logos School, who introduces 20 lessons that coordinate with the textbook. Jim has taught logic for years and co-authored the book, so his instruction is helpful. The Homeschool Package contains the Student Text, Teacher Edition, Test & Quiz Packet, and DVD Set. A book of additional questions is also available. 1001 Questions is a supplement that gives an average of 26 new questions for each lesson of the Introductory Logic text. These are helpfully divided by lesson and are numbered for quick reference. Answers are included. The book includes a CD-ROM that contains the digital version of the entire text in both Word and pdf formats. Make Introductory Logic one of their required courses and arm them for battle!
