  1. I am a 6th grade teacher and am excited to have these videos at my fingertips. I will be creating lessons based on these as they are language heavy for 12 year olds and would need some supporting materials. Critical work for all school children. Thank you!

  2. I'm watching this series again. I wanna be a better critical thinker. I have learned a lot from watching this show. David is a great teacher!

  3. “If a train leaves the station”….. actually these are great videos. You’re educating and I love it 🖤

  4. if you dont know this stuff you cant pass the second grade standardize test dont you pay attention to how our school system works at all now

    you also find this stuff on the SATs you should take the SATs again and make sure its still on it because i took it in 07

  5. you do realize scishow kids already uploaded all of this stuff because they are teaching children not at grade level so second graders are now doing 5th grade work and 5th graders are getting ready to do calculus

    if you dont know physics by 7th grade you are behind and you need to pass the standardize test and it has physics in it

    thx for this ha bisky vid anyways even though everybody knows this stuff and what you should go over is what jimmy dore does and why the dictionary is so important

  6. What about abductive arguments, which are also used in hypotheses? When one of the premises is just plausible, but the other is for sure, but this makes the conclusion just plausible as well. For example:
    P1: These candies are white.
    P2: This jar only contains white candies.
    C: These candies are from this jar.
    (This form of reasoning was rediscovered by Charles Sanders Peirce.)

  7. Very good series and I like the topic being presented. However, I like to add that although inductive reasoning could be used in arguments that are more flexible and therefore have conclusions that are not inevitable particularly if the original premise changes or new premises are added, inductive reasoning could still be used in objective arguments particularly if it involves math such as when attempting to interpolate data to discover a formula or curve on a graph.

  8. I'd like to hear more how deductive reasoning depends on objectivity. Never heard that, but it seems innate to correct reasoning, but lacking such statement. Thank you! Cheers!

  9. Thanks for doing this. I learned some of this stuff years ago in college and have forgotten a lot of the details. This is like a refresher.

  10. Hang in there Pakman. Emotional maturity isn't a skill to be mastered; it's something arrived at over time with experience.
