My (soon to be) university offers a class called, "Symbolic Logic," that fulfills the GER quantitative reasoning portion of our school's requirements. I'll be an incoming freshmen next academic year and was just an average math student in high school. Honestly, I just didn't put in that many hours into it. I did OK in high school maths, but am not sure how I'd do in college.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've thought about either going with the Symbolic Logic course or Statistics my first-year to fulfill the GER subject area. I took stats as a high school elective rather than Calculus, so am familiar with that.

Can someone maybe give their opinion of how hard Symbolic Logic is compared to Calculus?

And, additionally, can someone explain what I'd be learning in logic and where/how it's used in everyday life? I know Calculus would be very important if I were to major in a science field (which, for the moment, I'm less likely to do), but I'm not sure if a logic class would be useful in anything I would do in school or life later on.

Thanks everyone for your time and help. I greatly appreciate it!
