# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Electronics Systems III Task 1190989584

# Use Boolean algebra to express logic operations and minimize logic circuits in design.

## Definition

Use should include mathematical and graphical methods to simplify and reduce logic circuits.

## Process/Skill Questions

• What are the mathematical Boolean rules for logic circuits?
• What is the hierarchy of operations to apply these rules?
• What is a Karnaugh map, and how is it used to reduce circuitry?

## Mathematics

### COM.8

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.
