Algebraic Reasoning

Goals: 
  • Logical connectives and quantifiers: interpret statements that use logical connectives (and, if-then) as well as quantifiers (some, all, none).
  • Validity of arguments: use deductive reasoning to determine whether an argument (a series of statements leading to a conclusion) is valid or invalid .
  • Generalization: identify an appropriate generalization, an example that disproves an inappropriate generalization, or a hidden assumption.
