These lectures provide a basic introduction to the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics. While there are several reasons to believe that the Standard Model is just the low energy limit of a more fundamental theory, the SM has been successfully tested at an impressive level of accuracy and provides at present our best fundamental understanding of the phenomenology of particle physics. The perspective I will take will not be historical, I will instead take advantage of our present understanding to find the most direct logical motivations.
