WELCOME! Pretty Please! Phones off, iClickers out, brains active.

TRY THIS ONE: Symbolize & Contrapose “No planes can take off unless the fog clears.” P-F F-P SO, I wake up this morning and before I open the curtains, I notice that I cannot hear ANY PLANES taking off from the airport. What will the sky look like when I draw back the shades?

What happens if I do NOT buy any Kiwis? If I buy bananas, I will also buy strawberries. If I do not buy bananas, then Kiwis will be purchased. If I buy strawberries then I buy grapes too. It is really freakin’ hard to tell…. Right now. BUT……

Put it into SYMBOLS and then CONTRAPOSE…Take a minute… If I buy bananas, I will also buy strawberries. If I do not buy bananas, then Kiwis will be purchased. If I buy strawberries then I buy grapes too.

If I buy bananas, I will also buy strawberries. If I do not buy bananas, then Kiwis will be purchased. If I buy strawberries then I buy grapes too. BS -S-B -BK -KB SG -G-S IF I GET “B” I HAVE TO GET “S”. AND if I have “S”, I have to have “G” So “B” gets me “S” and “S” gets me “G”…SO I CAN COMBINE THEM INTO A BIGGER RULE: BS & G

-S-B -BK -KB SG -G-S -S gets me –B Does –B get me anything else? K

TRY FINDING OTHERS YOU CAN COMBINE! BS & G -S-B & K -BK -KB & S & G SG -G-S & -B & K BY COMBINING THESE STIMULUS/RESPONSE RELATIONSHIPS, WE SEE THE DEEPER IMPLICATIONS OF THREE INITIALLY SIMPLE STATEMENTS

TRY FINDING OTHERS YOU CAN COMBINE! BS & G -S-B & K -BK -KB & S & G SG -G-S & -B & K WHAT MUST BE TRUE IF: BANANAS ARE PURCHASED?

TRY FINDING OTHERS YOU CAN COMBINE! BS & G -S-B & K -BK -KB & S & G SG -G-S & -B & K WHAT MUST BE TRUE IF: BANANAS ARE NOT PURCHASED?

TRY FINDING OTHERS YOU CAN COMBINE! BS & G -S-B & K -BK -KB & S & G SG -G-S & -B & K WHAT MUST BE TRUE IF: STRAWBERRIES ARE NOT PURCHASED?

TRY FINDING OTHERS YOU CAN COMBINE! BS & G -S-B & K -BK -KB & S & G SG -G-S & -B & K WHAT MUST BE TRUE IF: KIWIS ARE NOT PURCHASED?

TRY FINDING OTHERS YOU CAN COMBINE! BS & G -S-B & K -BK -KB & S & G SG -G-S & -B & K WHAT MUST BE TRUE IF: GRAPES ARE PURCHASED?

G-dawg Symbols:  = “IF – THEN” = “AND” – = “NOT” V = “OR” D-dawg talks a lot about “truth tables” They CAN be useful tools for helping us to understand things. LET’S LOOK AT “IF – THEN”. If Tom eats beans he will have gas. B  G B G B  G T T T T F F F T T F F T All this table is doing is DEFINING the “  ” relationship: IF B IS TRUE THEN G IS ALSO TRUE.

If Jason has a machete’ then Curtis will die. IN G-dawg SYMBOLS: JM  CD CONTRAPOSITIVE: -CD  -JM AND from this we know that the ONLY two things that PROVE anything for us are… A)JM & -JM B)CD & -CD C)JM & CD D)-CD & -JM E)JM & - CD

Is this a valid argument? If determinism holds, people do not have free will. People have free will. Therefore determinism does not hold. D  -F F -D F  -D HOW CAN WE FIGURE THIS OUT? WHAT DO WE KNOW HOW TO DO? Put it into symbols CONTRAPOSE IT! HOW FREAKIN’ EASY IS THAT?

Let’s try another one: If Christopher jacks the Blu-Ray truck he will make enough money to pay back his uncle Tony. Sadly he was not able boost the truck so he will not be able to pay Tony back. SYMBOLSContrapositive CJT  \$\$\$ -CJT - \$\$\$ - \$\$\$  - CJT

Let’s up the ante…. A person who pulls their pork and eats cumquats either has carpal tunnel syndrome or head lice. Tony has carpal tunnel syndrome and head lice so he must either pull his pork or eat cumquats. SYMBOLS P EC  C V L C L P V EC Contrapositive: -C -L  -P V - EC

LET’S GET SOME CANDY! Allison is going to the store to buy some candy. She has several kinds to choose from: Juicy Fruit, Kit-Kats, Licorice, Mentos, Nougat Bars, Oh-Henrys, and Paydays. (J,K,L,M,N,O,P) 18(c) 2008-2009 Brad Lord-Leutwyler
