The aim of this course is to enhance students’ inferential abilities by understanding basic concepts of reasoning, developing sensitivity to the logical structure of sentences and translating them into formal languages, and evaluating arguments rigorously as valid or invalid. These activities will be applied to two symbolic languages of logic: Proposition Calculus and Predicate Logic. This course has no pre-requisites, but having taken P-150 often proves useful. The course covers twice the material covered in P150, and has a fast pace. Final grade is based on homework assignments, two tests, group work, and a final exam. The textbook for the course is Savion: "Brain Power", Kendall Hunt publishing ISBN 978-0-7575-8044-4
