In the DVD and Student Book, students will learn:
  • How to define terms for maximum precision and accuracy -- and thus win the debate
  • How to form and interpret statements, the building blocks of logical thought
  • How to compose valid syllogisms and expose invalid ones using counterexamples
  • How to analyze arguments in normal English
  • How to identify and deflect informal fallacies (one of the most instantly applicable parts of logic)
  • (See list of lessons for a complete breakdown of classes)
The Teacher's Guide provides everything you will need to make teaching logic as easy as possible:

FAQ

CAN I USE THE 4TH EDITION INTRODUCTORY LOGIC TEXTBOOKS (THE GREEN AND BLUE BOOKS) WITH THE NEW INTRODUCTORY LOGIC DVD COURSE?

Yes. The order and content of the individual chapters remains the same, so the books are still compatible. 

The only difference is with the Introductory Logic Test Book: In the Introductory Logic DVD course, James Nance works through a practice test for each unit, and those blank practice tests are not included in the current edition of the Introductory Logic Test Book (of course, you can still follow along as he works through the test on the DVD). 


CAN I USE THE 4ND EDITION INTERMEDIATE LOGIC TEXTBOOKS (THE GREEN AND BLUE BOOKS) WITH THE NEW INTERMEDIATE LOGIC DVD COURSE? 

Yes, you can—the order and content for most of the book has not changed. However, we’ve added some neat new features to the Intermediate Logic DVD course that the 4th edition textbook does not contain, such as the section on Digital Logic.

1) The 4th edition of the Intermediate Logic Test Book does not contain blank copies of the practice tests from the DVD course. 
2) The 4th edition Intermediate Logic books do not contain the DVD course’s “Lesson 28: Applying Tools to Actual Arguments.” 
3) The 4th edition books do NOT contain the optional fifth unit on Digital Logic. (The new Intermediate Logic DVD course covers the optional Digital Logic unit in Lessons 29-39.)
