Logic concepts are more mainstream than you may realize. There’s logic every place you look and in almost everything you do, from deciding which shirt to buy to asking your boss for a raise, and even to watching television, where themes of such shows as CSI and Numbers incorporate a variety of logistical studies. Logic For Dummies explains a vast array of logical concepts and processes in easy-to-understand language that make everything clear to you, whether you’re a college student of a student of life. You’ll find out about:

  • Formal Logic
  • Syllogisms
  • Constructing proofs and refutations
  • Propositional and predicate logic
  • Modal and fuzzy logic
  • Symbolic logic
  • Deductive and inductive reasoning

Logic For Dummies tracks an introductory logic course at the college level. Concrete, real-world examples help you understand each concept you encounter, while fully worked out proofs and fun logic problems encourage you students to apply what you’ve learned.

Fundamentals of Mathematics

Fundamentals of Mathematics Lowest new price: $29.08
Lowest used price: $29.08
List price: $304.95
Author: James Van Dyke
Brand: Brand: Cengage Learning

The FUNDAMENTALS OF MATHEMATICS, Tenth Edition, offers a comprehensive and objectives-based review of all basic mathematics concepts. The author helps learners by addressing three important needs: 1) establishing good study habits and overcoming math anxiety, 2) making the connections between mathematics and their modern, day-to-day activities, and 3) being paced and challenged according to their individual level of understanding. The clear exposition and the consistency of presentation make learning arithmetic accessible for all. Key concepts presented in section objectives--and further defined within the context of How and Why--provide a strong foundation for learning and lasting comprehension. With a predominant emphasis on problem-solving skills, concepts, and applications based on "real world" data (with some introductory algebra integrated throughout), this book is suitable for individual study or for a variety of course formats: lab, self-paced, lecture, group, or combined formats.

The Foundations of Mathematics

The Foundations of Mathematics Lowest new price: $18.67
Lowest used price: $19.15
List price: $24.95
Author: Ian Stewart
Brand: Oxford University Press USA

The transition from school mathematics to university mathematics is seldom straightforward. Students are faced with a disconnect between the algorithmic and informal attitude to mathematics at school, versus a new emphasis on proof, based on logic, and a more abstract development of general concepts, based on set theory.

The authors have many years' experience of the potential difficulties involved, through teaching first-year undergraduates and researching the ways in which students and mathematicians think. The book explains the motivation behind abstract foundational material based on students' experiences of school mathematics, and explicitly suggests ways students can make sense of formal ideas.

This second edition takes a significant step forward by not only making the transition from intuitive to formal methods, but also by reversing the process- using structure theorems to prove that formal systems have visual and symbolic interpretations that enhance mathematical thinking. This is exemplified by a new chapter on the theory of groups.

While the first edition extended counting to infinite cardinal numbers, the second also extends the real numbers rigorously to larger ordered fields. This links intuitive ideas in calculus to the formal epsilon-delta methods of analysis. The approach here is not the conventional one of 'nonstandard analysis', but a simpler, graphically based treatment which makes the notion of an infinitesimal natural and straightforward.

This allows a further vision of the wider world of mathematical thinking in which formal definitions and proof lead to amazing new ways of defining, proving, visualising and symbolising mathematics beyond previous expectations.

"A charming and challenging adventure." — Wordplay, the Crossword Blog of The New York Times
Alice and her friends return for another romp through Wonderland and the Looking-Glass with these eighty-eight puzzles, paradoxes, and logic problems. Raymond M. Smullyan's characters speak and behave like the originals, and their puzzles abound in typical Carrollian word play, logic problems, and dark philosophical paradoxes. Isaac Asimov described this book as "amusing, entertaining, and surprisingly educational. And it might just send you back to reread Alice."
Readers of all ages will delight in the charming stories and the wealth of ingenious puzzles. Written by a distinguished mathematician and creator of popular puzzle books, this volume requires no background in formal logic. The puzzles become progressively more complex, and complete solutions appear at the end. Puzzle authority Martin Gardner provides an Introduction to the text, which is enhanced by sixty charming illustrations. "An ingenious book," declared the Boston Globe, "magnificent for those who like conundrums, amusing for those who don't, and a tribute in itself to the genius of Lewis Carroll."
