Composition | Subjects We Teach | History

Subject: Logic

Logic in present-day English means the principles that can control a machine like a computer. At Columbia, we introduce those concepts in the fifth and sixth grades, giving students an opportunity to learn some basic computer coding in several languages.

In former times, logic did not define a set of instructions for a machine, but a discipline for the human mind. In the seventh and eigth grade, we begin the study of formal logic. This is the science of syllogisms, where we are more concerned about whether a person’s statement is valid than about whether it’s true. Students who learn logic know how to think.

In the upper grades, students will have about two sets of exercises to complete each week, to review the newly-introduced material, and a quiz every two weeks. Seventh-grade students who finish the first year’s book will continue into a second book in the eighth grade.
