"An introduction to Mathematical Logic using a unique pedagogical approach in which the students implement the underlying conceps as well as almost all the mathematical proofs in the Python programming language. The textbook is accompanied by an extensive collection of programming tasks, code skeletons, and unit tests. The covered mathematical material includes Propositional Logic and first-order Predicate Logic, culminating in a proof of Gödel's Completeness Theorem. A "sneak peak" into Gödel's Incompleteness Theorem is also provided"-- Using a unique pedagogical approach, this text introduces mathematical logic by guiding students in implementing the underlying logical concepts and mathematical proofs via Python programming. This approach, tailored to the unique intuitions and strengths of the ever-growing population of programming-savvy students, brings mathematical logic into the comfort zone of these students and provides clarity that can only be achieved by a deep hands-on understanding and the satisfaction of having created working code. While the approach is unique, the text follows the same set of topics typically covered in a one-semester undergraduate course, including propositional logic and first-order predicate logic, culminating in a proof of Gödel's completeness theorem. A sneak peek to Gödel's incompleteness theorem is also provided. The textbook is accompanied by an extensive collection of programming tasks, code skeletons, and unit tests. Familiarity with proofs and basic proficiency in Python is assumed.
