Software and Tutorials for Instruction in Symbolic Logic
8/9/2024
Welcome
This site contains software and instruction for symbolic logic. The content is relevant mainly to philosophy, mathematics, or computer science. Most of the material is at about a level suitable for entire courses for second year undergraduates, or for sections of graduate courses. [Indeed it has been used for instruction in the University of Otago, New Zealand, the University of Arizona, in the US, and elsewhere.] The software on this site should run quickly on any modern computers, tablets, and smartphones (iPads, iPhones, Android tablets, etc.).
Enjoy!

[These, and the software, can be configured to accompany almost any text— send me an email mfricke@arizona.edu.]
Legacy pages
Many of the old pages contain java applets, these can take 2030 seconds to load initially (so you may find yourself looking briefly at a blank page when opening some material). There are only a few of these pages that are left. Viewing java applets through a web browser is not easy these days, but if you try it you might also want to look at Checking Your Computer is Configured Correctly.
