The logic video describes what the premise of an argument is in relation to its conclusion and demonstrates how to test if an argument is valid or sound. Testing for validity and soundness are key critical thinking skills. At university, you will use these argument analysis skills to examine how accurate arguments are, to differentiate between good and poor arguments, and to construct sound arguments of your own.
At the end of this module on analyzing arguments, you should be able to
Recognize premises and conclusions in arguments
Differentiate a good argument from a poor argument
Determine when a simple argument is valid
Determine when a simple argument is sound
Classify arguments as either inductive or deductive
