If you thought math was all numbers, you’re in for a surprise. The ability to reason logically is both a prerequisite for learning mathematics and a desired outcome of mathematics instruction. Mathematics provides an excellent context in which to make students aware of the logical structures they need to function successfully in any setting.

Math-A-Logic is an award-winning text that successfully merges logical thinking with mathematical concepts and calculations. Eight areas of logic are introduced:
  • patterns and sequences,
  • analogies,
  • deduction,
  • inference,
  • sets and Venn diagram,
  • propositions and logical notation,
  • syllogisms, and
  • logical problem solving.

Attractive, reproducible worksheets lead students through each topic, providing explanations, examples, and exercises to test their understanding. With mathematics as the vehicle for presenting and practicing the logical concept, students get practice in mathematical concepts and computations while building thinking skills. The end result is clearer thinking and enhanced problem-solving abilities. This unique approach is sure to be a favorite supplement to your regular math program. The attractive illustrations, clear instructions, solid content, and ease of use make this book a winner.

This book is the winner of Learning Magazine’s Teacher Choice award.

This is not your typical math training workbook. Rather, it is a brain training workbook. Through puzzles usning problem solving, decuction, analogies and more students use their logical reasoning skills to complete activities. As such, there is no "how to" instructions. The goal is for students to think their way through a logical decuction using only what is presented. 

This book is ideal for students who are gifted in math, logical reasoning and able to problem solve with ease.
