Examination questions – logic 1

## Friday 23 November

Today we are going to go through *implication* and *equivalence*. You will also hear about the *converse *of an implication.

Learning goals:

- Understand the concepts.
- How to write them in symbols.
- The truth table values for the concepts.

## Homework for Friday

Watch the video below (Tuesday’s post) about implication.

## Wednesday 21 November

Today we will go through:

- More of truth tables. Also with three propositions.
- Logical equivalence – when you have the same T/F-values in two columns in a truth table.
- Tautology – if all values in a truth table column are true.
- Logical contradiction – if all values in a truth table column are false.

## Friday 16 November

Today we are going to start the topic Logic, our 9th unit.

Logic deals with the conversion of worded statements into symbols and is the study of correct reasoning.

Logic involves many concepts which you have to learn. We are going to tick them off, one by one:

- Proposition
- Negation
- Truth tables
- Conjunction
- Disjunction
- Exclusive disjunction
- Logical Equivalence
- Tautology
- Logical contradiction
- Implication
- Equivalence
- Converse
- Inverse
- Contrapositive
- Valid arguments

Today: Propositions, negation, conjunction and disjunction. And, an introduction of truth tables.

#### Propositions

– Statements that are either *true* or *false*.

– Use the notation p: or q: (or other letters, such as r and s)

#### Negation

– The negation of a proposition is ”not p”.

#### Conjunction

Join two propositions with the word *and*.

#### Disjunction

Join two propositions with the word *or*.

## Wednesday 14 November

Today we will have our last lesson on calculus.

Next lesson we will do something completely different, Logic. Please watch the video below as an introduction:

## Tuesday 13 November

## Homework for Tuesday 13 November

Redo what you did during the lesson Friday. Also, do example 7 in page 600 in the book.

## Friday 9 November

Optmisation and examination questions.

Many real life problems, which require knowledge of differentiation, is about to find the optimum solution. For example, it can be about finding the maximum height or minimum cost. It is called optimisation.

Today we are going to go through an example involving the shape of a pen, which we are going to fence in.

Then you work on the examination questions.
