The student will implement conditional statements that include “if/then” statements, “if/then/else” statements, case statements, and Boolean logic.

COM.15

The student will define and use appropriate variable data types that include integer, real (fixed and scientific notation), character, string, Boolean and object.

G.1

The student will use deductive reasoning to construct and judge the validity of a logical argument consisting of a set of premises and a conclusion. This will include
  1. identifying the converse, inverse, and contrapositive of a conditional statement;
  2. translating a short verbal argument into symbolic form; and
  3. determining the validity of a logical argument.
