This will be the quirkiest thinking skills book your teen will ever encounter and probably the most thorough. In fact, Life of Fred: Logic is suitable as a text for both high school and college. Logic is the study of reasoning, with the goal of discerning sound reasoning from bad.
Training our teens to construct intelligent lines of reason and spot weak ones is a valuable skill in everyday life and in any career. Instead of dry exposition and endless drill exercises, Life of Fred: Logic uses witty narratives and puzzles that teens will find appealing.
It includes inductive reasoning, seventeen logical fallacies, predicate logic, direct and indirect proofs, and so much more. One of the primary roles of parenthood is to teach our teens to think analytically, and for that, Life of Fred will be a great tool in your toolbox.
This course is spread over 16 lessons. Plan to complete two lessons every month to finish Life of Fred: Logic in an academic year.
