Chapter 4: Understanding Logical Reasoning

In this chapter, we will explore logical reasoning processes such as conditional statements, algorithmic reasoning, and Boolean logic. We will explore inductive and deductive reasoning before delving deeper into some logic operators. We will also learn about logic errors, how to identify them, and how to correct them.

In addition, we will be looking at writing algorithms using logic to solve computational thinking problems.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Understanding the importance of logical reasoning
  • Using Boolean logic and operators
  • Identifying logic errors

When solving computational thinking problems, logical reasoning is necessary. We all know that programming code has ...
