In this paper we consider applications of logical connectives and the laws of logic in the process of mathematical education. One of the basic goals in education is that students obtain knowledge and mastery (Nesher and Kilpatrick, 1990). Another one, which is of no less importance, is to enhance students' logical reasoning (Dunkin and Barnes, 1986? Casanovas, 2003). Then a natural question arises : 'How can we teach them reasoning?'.
