Plagiarism occurs when writers deliberately or unintentionally use another person's language, ideas, or materials and present them as their own without properly acknowledging and citing the source. Academic Integrity and Plagiarism in this course results in one or more of the following consequences: failure of the assignment, referral to the Dean of Instruction, and/or disciplinary actions by the Director Student Life. Cite sources carefully, completely, and meticulously; when in doubt, cite. Familiarize yourself with BC’s Student Code of Conduct and KCCD’s definitions of plagiarism and cheating (KCCD Board Policy 4F7D; pg. 115).DSPS StatementCourse PoliciesCampus ResourcesCourse CalendarWeek 1 January 18-24Week 2, January 25-31Week 3, February 1-7Philosophy B7: Introduction to Logic Spring 2020 Online ScheduledInstructor InformationName: Bryan RussellOffice hours: 9:30am-1pm on Wednesdays and by appointment.Contact: [email protected] MeetingsThis class is listed as “online scheduled,” which means I will be hosting Zoom meetings during our assigned meeting times. You are required to attend our Zoom meetings on Wednesdays. I will not be holding meetings on Mondays. I plan to do the following in our meetings:Mondays: No meetings!Wednesdays: Briefly review the ideas we are covering that week. Group work. For the group work, I will put you into breakout rooms with 2-3 of your fellow classmates. I will assign the group problems to complete by the end of class. If your group privately messages me the answers for the day’s problems, then you will get credit for the group work for that meeting. There are no makeups for thegroup work. It is, in essence, a record of your attendance.The following is the link to join our Zoom meetings:https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82357363941Course DescriptionTraditional basics of correct reasoning with an emphasis on their relationships to language, thought and argument.Student Learning Outcomes1.

Our text can use some technical language, so I would recommend reading the assigned readings after watching the corresponding video lectures.Videos In each content module, there will be a video of me or someone else explaining the main concepts and problem-solving skills (like a mini-lecture). In the videos, I will provide the questions and possible answers for the Post Lecture Quizzes. So,you will have to record the questions and your answer while you are watching thelectures.Post-lecture Quizzes (10 points each)After viewing each lecture, you will have to take a post-lecture quiz on Canvas. The post-lecture quizzes will consist of a few multiple-choice questions. You will find the questions and possible answers at the end of each video lecture. Once you open a quiz, you will have 10 minutes to complete it and you will not beable to reopen it once you close it. The post-lecture quizzes will be due before our class meeting on Wednesdays before class or Sundays at 11:59pm. I will let you know when they are due in my beginning of the week email.Homework (20 points per chapter)You will have to complete problem sets for every lesson. I have selected problems from our text and entered them into Canvas. You should try to completethe homework for the week before our scheduled Wednesday Zoom meetings, soyou can ask any questions you might have during our meeting. The homework will not be due until the Sunday after it is assigned at 11:59pm. I will grade the homework for completeness, not correctness. So, if you make a good faith effort to complete all assigned problems, you will receive full credit.Exams (100 points each)Each exam is worth 100 points. Exams cover material in the text and are not cumulative. They will only contain multiple choice problems, chapter 7 test excepted. The exams will open at the beginning of the week they are assigned.
