Logical Thinking.
McAloon, Mary de Lourdes
This is one of a series of units intended for both preservice and inservice elementary school teachers to satisfy a need for materials on "new mathematics" programs which (1) are readable on a self basis or with minimal instruction, (2) show the pedagogical objectives and uses of such mathematical structural ideas as the field axioms, sets, and logic, and (3) relate mathematics to the "real world," its applications, and other areas of the curriculum. This unit explores with teachers ideas about inference as the operation by which new knowledge is obtained by logical implications from the known. Included among these ideas are concepts on sentence sense, variables, placeholders, connectives, inferences from negations, contradictions, implications, and truth values of implications. (RP)
