A refresher in formal and informal logic, the Quick Trip comes just before a given logic exam. The idea is for the student, working as an individual, to complete a bank of assigned "tests" as homework. Some of the questions (with the permission of the author) will appear on the exam.
Type of Task:
10-30 minutes for one or two test banks.

Students will reinforce their understanding of logical concepts and informal logic as they complete the various test banks; they will also find the test banks a study guide since some of the questions will appear also on an exam
No special programs are needed. If the student has a modem connection to the Internet the assignment can be completed.
Text of Learning Exercise:
