The prerequisite for this course is P250 or its equivalent. The primary aim of this course is to enrich and deepen students' Understanding of first order logic. After reviewing propositional Calculus and Monadic Predicate Logic briefly, we will study relational statements, multiple quantifiers, and identity, investigate the semantics of first order logic; interpretation, sentences expansion, proof of invalidity, sentence-equivalence and consistency. We will then cover basic notions of set theory and if time permits, we'll discuss non-classical logics. Final grade for the course is calculated from students' group-work, homework assignments, two tests and a final exam. The required text is the latest edition of “Brain Power: Symbolic Logic for the Novice” (PURPLE COVER), written by the instructor.
