 Description: In this activity, developed by the Lane Community College MAPS GIS Program, students "use logical connectors in searching a database to understand how quickly the search narrows by adding connectors. They will translate a search in to logic notation and sketch a digital circuit. Finally, they will break a story into logical statements to arrive at a solution." By the end of the lesson, students will be able to use logical connectors in searching a database, understand how quickly the search narrows by adding connectors, translate a search in to logic notation, translate a search to a digital circuit, break a story into logical statements to arrive at a solution. On the site, visitors will find a link to the student activity, some introductory material about GIS and the web-based viewer used in this lesson, and a link to the data needed to complete it. This is an excellent activity for high school or early undergraduate students for hands-on work with GIS and the mathematics and computer science behind it.
