Symbolic logic (also known as formal logic) helps you to make sense of complex arguments by breaking them down into parts. When you understand symbolic logic, you have a rulebook that you can use to determine whether arguments are valid.
Symbolic logic uses symbols to represent ideas and the connections between them. It may look intimidating, but it is based on simple principles such as cause and effect. There is no reason that children cannot understand it. Most symbolic logic resources, however, are written using complex language that is not accessible to children (or, really, to most adults). Therefore, I am creating a series of worksheets explaining symbolic logic to children using a simple, step-by-step method.
I am offering the first set of worksheets for free. Enter your email address if you would like me to send you them as they become available.
