Learn God's Characteristics through Math

Summer Math!

What a concept!

Who would purposefully choose to learn math during the summer?

YOU would!

Because this is not like any other math class out there.

About this class:

This class is filled with activities and stories and learning all done in class - no homework.

  • This is an eight week pilot class for the whole family. It will take place online (or in person if you can) twice a week for 30 - 45 minutes.
  • The cost is $50 per family for all 16 classes.
  • We will meet in the mornings every Monday and Wednesday for eight weeks, starting July 2 (skipping the 4th).


Commitment

I'm looking for families that can attend at least 60% of the time (including at least one parent), participate in activities and give feed back after each class on the classes and the overall course.

The purpose of this class


1.

​Gain a stronger relationship with, and understanding of God the Father

2.

T​urn on the enthusiasm for math

3.

​Show personal application for math

4.

​Demonstrate that you CAN do math, because it's not just about worksheets (computations)

​5.

H​ow to find principles

​6.

F​​ind solutions for modern concerns

​7.

​Create your own problems and find solutions and vice versa.

​8.

​See and feel how God used Math everywhere!

​9.

​AND learn all about the geometry of the circle.

Supplies you'll need:

  • scrap paper to practice on
  • a notebook for notes and vocabulary (composition book) OR plain paper to add to a 3 ring binder
  • Math compass
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Printer to print off the activity each week
  • Other household items:
  • Each lesson may have extra things and you'll get a supply list before class. For example to make a fan you'll need a push pin and a pencil with an eraser. Or for circles you'll need a can or cup and a string.
