Boolean Algebra. Geometry Module for Use in a Mathematics Laboratory Setting.
Brotherton, Sheila; And Others
This module is recommended as an honors unit to follow a unit on logic. There are four basic parts: (1) What is a Boolean Algebra; (2) Using Boolean Algebra to Prove Theorems; (3) Using Boolean Algebra to Simplify Logical Statements; and (4) Circuit Problems with Logic and Boolean Algebra. Of these, sections 1, 2, and 3 are primarily written exercises. Section 4 involves modeling problems on a circuit board. Some supplementary materials are included at the end of the module. An additional section on computer-extended Boolean Algebra appears at the end of the teacher's guide. (Author/MK)
