1st Grade – Math

Philosophy
God created humans with a rational and inquiring mind. He blessed them with the ability to count, tell time and make change. In mathematics we will explore and develop this God given gift systematically. As the Bible says “precept upon precept, line upon line…” (Isaiah 28:10), students will systematically build up there knowledge of mathematics. As they learn the different disciplines of mathematics students will recognize the logic and order God imbued in the world and by implication that God is a God of logic and order. They will develop a greater understanding and appreciation of God through their study of mathematics.

Course Objectives
In first grade mathematics students will gain a love for and understanding of the beginning math concepts of addition, subtraction, geometry, algebra, fractions, time, multiples, money, data, graphs and measurement (ESLR: ET) learning to apply these principles to real life. (ESLR: NLL) Students will learn that like God math is orderly and logical.(ESLR: RUC) Students will learn to explain the principles of math. (ESLR: DC) They will work and play together fairly with those from other countries. (ESLR: SCW) Students will learn about money from different countries. (ESLR: SCW)
