Credit for Logic

Audrey asked
What category is "Logic", math or English?  I want to know where to give my son credit. It will probably be a 1/4 credit course.  Our math course (Geometry: Videotext) has logic in it. But I always thought this was an "English" subject.    While Logic is part of Videotext Geometry, I also have Introductory Logic by  Wilson and Nance.  I want to know where to give my son credit. It will probably be a 1/4 credit course.

Audrey,
If you use a separate course for logic, I usually put it as an elective.  If the logic is just a part of your math book, then I just consider it part of the math credit.

Logic is critical thinking, and it can be applied to math OR English (or other subjects as well!)  I don't think you could say that Logic IS math or English, though.

I used Introductory Logic by Nance, and we LOVED it!  In fact, my son liked it so much he has continued his Logic studies in college!  Did you get the video?  It's wonderful!



Here is the video link:

When I did Logic, I considered it a 1/2 credit course.  Like you, we also had some logic in the math textbook we used (Jacobs Geometry) but I didn't really consider that as part of his logic course.

Most credits are 1 or 1/2 credit, and it's pretty rare to have 1/4 credit.  If you feel the course is just 1/4 credit, consider finding "something else" that you can combine with that 1/4 credit, to make it 1/2 credit.

Hi Audrey! We didn't actually use the Teaching Company videos. We used the Introductory Logic Videos by Nance that came with the Introductory Logic Book. It's a deeply Christian curriculum, that may not fit everyone, but it was perfect for our family. Because I knew NOTHING about logic, I thought the videos would be helpful, and it really was. The link to the video is above - just under the photo of the book.
Blessings,
Lee
