LSAT logic puzzles

April 3, 2007 pm30 11:49 pm

My logic class gets every Friday off. Sort of. We meet Friday first period, bit for games and puzzles, not a regular class. It is part of my deal to con the kiddies into signing up for the class, and it lightens the work load by 25% or so.

Anyhow, class of over 30, and by far their favorite choice for Friday activities are LSAT logic puzzles. I hand out a regular section (4 groups) and the best paper gets a “homework pass.” Sometimes I like having geeky kids.

    Do you have a good source for these puzzles? I’d love to lighten everyone’s work load by 25%….

    I just use a prep book. One of the nice things about my situation is that I have the flexibility to do this. It works.

    Instead of facing senioritis I can work in lots of real content (we cover what would be done in a freshman intro level college logic class). But I assign outside readings so that we can afford to lose one day every week.

    I think everyone is delighted that I keep this group fairly well motivated, at fairly small cost.
