Design a logic circuit, using Boolean algebra and methods.
Design should include the following Boolean equations and methods:
- Logic circuits and Boolean equations
- Basic function
- Boolean formats
- Sum of products
- Product of sums
- Circuit equations
- What are the values available in Boolean algebra?
- Why are Boolean numbers distinct/different from binary numbers?
- How does Boolean addition relate to the logical function of an OR gate?

The student will implement conditional statements that include “if/then” statements, “if/then/else” statements, case statements, and Boolean logic.
The student will define and use appropriate variable data types that include integer, real (fixed and scientific notation), character, string, Boolean and object.
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
- identifying the converse, inverse, and contrapositive of a conditional statement;
- translating a short verbal argument into symbolic form; and
- determining the validity of a logical argument.
