4th 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 their 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
The objective of this subject is for the students to be able to computate using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division and understand what the computations mean. The students will also be able to understand what is being asked in a math problem and correctly identify the correct operation needed to solve the problem.
