In this exercise, you'll be asked to do simple tree diagrams with the Araucaria program. You'll make figures that look like this:
Notice that this diagram shows the premises above together leading to a conclusion below. It's marked by DS...make sure you see why!
Homework: You will be given four new arguments. Your job will be to give tree diagrams for all four and save them as .jpg picture files to be uploaded and posted on Moodle. You can do this as one big picture or four little ones.
Directions: Now, it's time to do your own.
First, download, install, and open our argument drawing program, Araucaria. Right now the best place to find it is on our Moodle page.
Second, you'll need to get a bunch of files that are specific to our class. The easiest thing to do is to place these all on your desktop...
Windows users: Run this little program and unzip all the files to your desktop. (If you hate a cluttered desktop, you can put these files in another folder of your choosing later.)
