this is what I'm doing in one of my classes.. a few of you might be familiar with it, symbolic logic.
Deductive Logic. Basically those letters represent premises or propositions. In the first example I was given a set of premises and I had to show how they logically entail that conclusion. You manipulate the premises using basic metarules.What is its application?
It's the equation for the rate of change of an equation.Caculus is comming for me, What exactly is Differental Equations?
Pretty sure you are refering to Differentiable Equations. They are simply equations that have a derivative at every point... if you don't know what they are I doubt you will understand that answer rollin:Caculus is comming for me, What exactly is Differental Equations?
Our professor is rather incompetent, so I can't really say whether it's that useful or not. We have done very few practical applications.. however, theoretically you could create flawless arguments, just don't ask me howSmalls--Interesting, I was thinking it was vaguely along those lines. Is its real-world application actually worthwhile or is it rather useless? I have found that theorems like that are either astoundingly accurate or POS.
yeah. the simpliest example is a basic linear function.So, its a equation of a equation?
differential equations is a upper level math class taken after calc 3.Pretty sure you are refering to Differentiable Equations. They are simply equations that have a derivative at every point... if you don't know what they are I doubt you will understand that answer rollin:

mhm, the course title is Elementary Symbolic Logic, so obviously it's going to be the basics. That doesnt change the fact that this is still pretty bizarre to be encountering for the first time, which is the point of the thread. not trying to brag about how hard a course im in or anything.. cuz I wouldnt be braggin anyways, I dont understand the ****!I'd hate to be the Wet Blanket here but that's like pretty basic in any Discrete Math course. Just wait till you get out of the truth table stage and get into the real heavy stuff. Very abstract.
...and its not just a course title. Its a concept used in all of calculus, no doubt it is infinitley more complex at the higher levels, but the theory in its most elementary form is indeed appliable to early calc.differential equations is a upper level math class taken after calc 3.
Yeah, that example is actually a basic sequent called Hypothetical Syllogism. Basically, if P implies Q and Q implies R, then P implies R. Which is just makes sense right, but to prove that that's a fair logical deduction you can prove it using the basic rules of symbolic logic.kinda like the whole "if a=b, and b=c, then a=c"...only on like a whole different plane of difficulty.
