Review of Mathematical Logic
In teaching abstract algebra,
our philosophy is to start start right in on the algebra,
rather than spending a lot of time on prerequisites from logic and set theory.
This means that we grade a lot of homework papers very carefully,
and provide help in writing proofs and using logic
in the context of working the exercises in the text.
For students who would like a more formal review of logic,
here is a list of sites that we hope will be helpful.

by Stefan Waner and Steven R. Costenoble, Hofstra University
- Notes on set theory, logic, proof, etc,
from Cal State, San Bernardino
