Current Assignments
September 3
Read chapter 2 of A Concise Introduction to Logic. Before class starts, answer the four questions on Angel.

To answer the questions in Angel, log into your Angel account, select PHL111 from your courses, and click on the tab for Learning Modules. You'll see the "Chapter 2 questions" link there. Answer the questions before class.

You are not expected to answer the questions in the reading! Soon I'll post a homework for Friday, and that will have questions from the reading.

While in Angel, and after selecting PHL111, click on the "Communicate" link to the left, or the "Communicate" tab above. You'll see a page where there is a block you can click to register your Clicker.

Some have asked about past reading assignments. Reading questions become available when the homework is assigned, and become unavailable 10 minutes before the class they are due.

September 5
Homework 1: please do problems 4 and 5 of chapter 2 in the textbook. These are translations, to practice moving from English to our logical language. Hand them in at the beginning of class on Friday.
