Publisher Description:

Studying formal logic can be intimidating without the right help, but knowing how to think logically isn't just for "experts."

Our easy-to-read layout comes with summaries, key points, definitions, and cautions so you learn and keep an understanding of logic.

It's the tool for learning how to use other tools.

I t's the bones that give a clenched fist its structure (and knuckles).

Introductory Logic is perfect for Grade 7+ students, teachers, and parents who've never tackled syllogisms or fallacies before. It provides a semester or year's worth of logic to help you detect and deflect flawed or deceitful arguments and to think, debate, and argue well.

  • Student Edition
    • 40 lessons covering formal and informal logic
    • sidebars with definitions, key points, cautions, further study, activities for thinking deeper, and historical information
    • perforated pages with practice exercises
  • Teacher's Edition
    • a daily lesson schedule for completing Introductory Logic in a semester or a year-long course.
    • answers to all exercises, review questions, review exercises, quizzes, and tests in the order they are taught.
    • contains the entire Student Edition text—with the same page numbers as the Student Edition! No more flipping back and forth between answer keys and textbook.
    • daily lesson plans with step-by-step teaching advice, objectives, and assignments
  • Video Courses
    • expanded lessons and examples for independent students or a teacher's prep
    • animations and visual cues
    • veteran teacher Brian Kohl teaches through every lesson and practice test to help independent students or teachers who need to prepare
  • Tests & Quizzes
    • quizzes every two or three lessons (not just tests)
    • two versions of each test for extra practice
    • answers in 5th Ed. Intro Teacher
    • looseleaf, hole-punched, resealable packets to prevent copying

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 Student Text 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 Edition includes both full-year and semester lesson schedules; answers to all exercises, review exercises, quizzes and tests; the entire content of the Student Text; and detailed daily lesson plans with teacher's notes. The DVD Set includes lessons from Brian Kohl who has taught at the high school and college levels. The Homeschool Package contains the Student Text, Teacher Edition, Test & Quiz Packet, and DVD Set. Make Introductory Logic one of their required courses and arm them for battle!

I learned logic with this curriculum when I was being homeschooled around 20 years ago. Now it's been updated several times, but I know what we're getting into, something that saves me a lot of mental work as we learn together as a family. I love the syllogisms and informal fallacies sections.

A shopper on Oct 22, 2019

I purchased this set but it didn't include the answers to the tests & quizzes! Are they available?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The answers to all the quizzes, tests, and exams are in the Teacher Edition.
How necessary are the DVDs if I am doing the course with him? Can he read the same information in the text as in the video lecture?
Tavianna on Aug 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I was a Classical Conversations Challenge B Director last year. Students can read the same info in the text, but the DVDs are very helpful. The author does more explaining in the DVDs and he works sample problems. I found that most of my students greatly benefited from the DVDs.
Is this the 5th edition?
User on Apr 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is the 5th edition. We bought ours in 09/2015, so I'm not sure if they've come out with a new edition since then.
Is this the set that was updated in 2014? Thank you!
A shopper on Jul 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes this is the current version, in use at Classical Convervsations.

Meeting My Expectations
I purchased Introductory Logic for my 12th Grade dyslexic son who dislikes everything to do with school but who is very argumentative. I figured as long as he was going to argue every point with everyone throughout life, he at least better have good logic. When the curriculum arrived, he took half a glance at the workbook and said, "Uh. No!"

We are currently two chapters in, and he is actively engaged in the class. The videos are well filmed with appropriate animation and summary screens and provide all the information necessary to complete the workbook, no textbook reading is necessary. My son completes the workbook orally. I do not see that the information on the quizzes and tests always correlates with what was emphasized in the workbook, but we have remedied that by having a review day beforehand, using the quiz or test.

I'm finding that the focus on definitions and usage in a practical context (rather than in isolated grammar exercises) is helpful for my son with dyslexia.

Clear, manageable bites of logic
We sorely need to teach our children how to think, and just as important, how to think things through. They are bombarded with choices on a regular manifests as peer pressure, media influence, and (welp) adult guidance. The video lessons are clear and engaging. The speaker does not mince words and highlights all the key points. The book reinforces the concepts and has a clean layout. The language is grade appropriate. The concepts may be difficult to grasp at first, but stick with's absolutely worth it! I'm learning right alongside my 7th graders. Highly recommend!!!
