Homework Assignments

All exercises are from Patrick Hurley A Concise Introduction to Logic (6th edition). After the first week they are all to be done using LogicCoach III software. LogicCoach III will tell you whether your answer is correct and will generally allow you to rework the problem until you get it right. Most of the problems for the first week may be done using LogicCoach III software, but they need not be turned in on disk.
