• Material Logic, Answer Key

    The principles of material logic, an important part of trivium language study, are now almost completely forgotten--a casualty of the almost exclusive modern secular emphasis on the quantitative sciences. This has resulted in the rise of systems of modern logic that are more math than logic. Formal logic was once termed minor logic, while material logic usually went by the name of major logic--possibly a measure of how important classical thinkers considered it. There is a huge gap between formal logic courses and so-called 'thinking skills' courses. Formal logic focuses exclusively on the systematic study of the structure of reasoning. 'Thinking skills' courses, on the other hand, tend to suffer from a highly non-systematic, topic-hopping approach, where the student is unable to see how one principle connects with another. Whether you want a follow-up course to Memoria Press' popular Traditional Logic program, or simply an introduction to logic for high school students, this program is a valuable tool in teaching your student how to think.

  • Intermediate Logic: Answer Key (2nd edition)

    Logic is the art of reasoning well - of learning to think God's thoughts after Him. In this book, James Nance builds on the foundation of Introductory Logic for Christian and Home Schools to help students explore the more challenging terrain of formal, propositional logic. This Answer Key provides answers to all of the standard student text exercises. Also included are answers and examples for selected exercises in the "Additional Exercises" section found at the end of each lesson. Required for course.

  • Introductory Logic: Answer Key (4th edition)

    Logic is the art of reasoning well - of learning to think God's thoughts after Him. In this book, directed toward junior-high students, Douglas Wilson and James Nance lay the proper foundation of reasoning in the truth of God, and go on to train students in the crucial skills of defining terms, recognizing basic types of statements, arguing with syllogisms, arguing in ordinary language, and identifying informal fallacies. This text, together with Intermediate Logic by James Nance, provides students with a rigorous course in logic that will help them excel in every other subject they will study, from math and science to rhetoric and the humanities. Extensively revised and updated, with additional review questions and exercises for each unit, this book is an essential part of every Christian school or home school curriculum.

  • Intermediate Logic: Answer Key (1st edition)

    Covering topics in logic too often reserved for a college course, Intermediate Logic simplifies various elements of propositional and symbolic logic, including truth tables and formal proofs of validity. While this textbook/workbook can be used for one year's worth of study, older students may work through Introductory Logic and Intermediate Logic in a school year. This basic key provides answers to the 35 exercises found in the Student textbook. Student lesson sections are not included.

  • Problem Solving Strategies: Crossing the River with Dogs and other Mathematical Adventures (Instructor's Resource Book & Answer Key)

    Problem Solving Strategies Crossing the River with Dogs and Other Mathematical Adventures Why Teach a Course in Problem Solving? The NCTM Principles andStandards state that problem solving should be integrated throughout all courses and grade levels. For example, guess-and-check is a natural strategy to apply in algebra. Advanced math students often use finite differences to study functions and sequences. And drawing a diagram and using physical representations are commonly employed strategies in many contexts. However, many students never encounter valuable strategies such as matrix logic or unit analysis. And in content-crowded math classes, few students get the concentrated practice or time necessary to fully develop their problem-solving skills. By taking a semester course in problem solving, students can master a multitude of strategies while developing confidence in their problem-solving abilities. Your students will be better prepared to meet the challenges of school and life by taking this course.

  • The 15-Tangram Book & Puzzle: 460 Puzzles of Ancient Chinese Wisdom (Includes a 15-Piece Wooden Tangram Set and Answer Keys)

    This beautiful tangram kit includes the original fifteen-piece set along with a beautifully illustrated instruction guide. The tangram has a very long history. In the Qing Dynasty, there was a puzzle game whose idea derived from the Banquet Table Diagrams (Yanji Tu) of the Song Dynasty and Butterfly Table Diagrams (Dieji Tu) of the Ming Dynasty, capturing the wisdom of the ancients. From literati to businessmen, even the royal family, they all fell in love with this brain game, also known as the "Fifteen-Piece Tangram Puzzle." As the name suggests, the fifteen-piece tangram puzzle consists of fifteen pieces. They are different from the regular seven-piece tangram puzzle concerning shapes and number of pieces. The regular seven-piece tangram puzzle is made up of five triangles, one square, and one parallelogram. The fifteen-piece tangram puzzle is also dissected from a square but composed of more shapes: four triangles, two trapezoids, one parallelogram, two L-shapes, two semi-circles, and four arch-shapes. A more extensive range of shapes and pieces allows more flexibility and creates more vivid configurations such as animals, birds, flowers, fruits, figures, objects, or even landscapes. Every single puzzle in this tangram book is full of imagination, supplemented with poems and ...
