Week 8 Learning Log 1. What was the tutorial topic and the concepts that were covered? This tutorial mainly covers the topic of logic argument and reasoning. In order to establish a proper structure to make argument inconsistently and present explanation reasonably, pyramid structure can be a good choice which contributes to logical order.

The first is positioned as presenting the team’s ideas, subsequently the second is to defend against the opposite’s ideas with examples and reasons, and finally the third one is to make conclusion of the debate.
