This week we learned about :
– AND and OR /Conjunction and Disjunction
– NOT /Negation, and how to push negation into the statement as far as possible
– Truth table and equivalence
– Standard Equivalencies and Laws
My professor said these are the fundamentals of logic that we will need to master for when we learn proofs. In this tutorial this week’s exercises we had represent an english statement with logic notation. The last 2 questions seemed to be the most difficult to translate correctly,
f) No course has more than two prerequisites
g) Some courses have the same prerequisites.
Since its rather difficult to translate directly to logic notation, my TA suggested we rephrase the statement for f) if a course has more than two prerequisites 2 of them are equivalent courses.
we are getting our first assignment next week so stay tuned to hear about it!
Until next time,
