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
  • Tests & Quizzes
    • quizzes every two or three lessons (not just tests)
    • two versions of each test for extra practice

    • 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!

If both of my sons are doing this class, should I purchase 2 student books and one teacher?
Alyssa on Jul 21, 2021
BEST ANSWER: It’s up to you and the needs of your students and whether or not they will be working together on assignments. If your students will be completing most or all of the exercises, then it might be best to purchase a book for each of them. However, the exercise questions could also be answered on a separate sheet of paper.
How many high school credits is this worth?
Tamara on Mar 22, 2021
BEST ANSWER: It might depend on your state but typically Introductory Logic would be considered a one semester (1/2 credit) course.
Is it 5th edition?
Sarah S on Aug 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we received the 5th Edition of the Introductory Logic set last year for the Classical Conversations Challenge B program. We also purchased the Intermediate set which was the Third Edition. Blessings!

I'm teaching this to 10 homeschool kids. Thorough. I just wish there were more examples to work through.

Great logic progam
Comprehensive but doable. The teacher guide has all the answers in a very easy to follow format that matches the student book exactly, making it very easy to correct the exercises and quizzes.
