  1. SYMBOLIZATION Statement: A sentence that makes a claim about the world. Simple Statement: A statement that makes a single claim about the world. It is a single piece of content. The sky is blue. Butane is a gas. Parakeets are colorful. Logic is fun.

  2. Simple statements are symbolized with single capital letters, i. e. each piece of content is represented by a single capital letter. The sky is blue. – S Butane is a gas. – B Parakeets are colorful. – P Logic is fun. – F One may use any capital letter so long as the same letter is not used to symbolize two different simple statements.

  3. Complex (Compound) Statement: A statement that contains a logical operator or connective. Negation Operator (~): Logical operator that takes you from a statement to its negation (its direct opposite). Not The sky is not blue. ~S It’s not the case that butane is a gas. ~B The tilde always goes in front.

  4. Conjunction (·): Logical connective used to join two statements when asserting that both statements are true. The statements that comprise a conjunction are called conjuncts. and but moreover still although nevertheless however Bush is President, and Cheney is Vice President. B · C Although Bush is President, Gore is not Vice President. B · ~G

  5. Disjunction (v): Logical connective used to join two statements when asserting that at least one of them is true. The statements that comprise a disjunction are called disjuncts. (Either) . . . or unless Paul will not write the play, unless Betty directs it. ~P v B

  7. Material Equivalence (): Logical connective used to join two statements when asserting they always have the sametruth value. if and only if sufficient and necessary condition Richard’s singing or Paula’s dancing is a sufficient and necessary condition for Mike’s acting and Laura’s not dancing. (R v P)  (M · ~L)

[(D v M)  (N · P)] · [(L · T) v (S v R)]

  9. Material Implication (): Logical connective used to join two statements when asserting the truth of one (the antecedent) is sufficient by itself for the truth of the other (the consequent). When you symbolize, the antecedent always goes to the left of the horseshoe. The consequent always goes to the right of the horseshoe. Antecedent  Consequent

  10. Antecedent if . . . given that . . . just in case . . . provided that . . . . . . implies . . . entails . . . is a sufficient condition
