Description of Math Lessons B:2:
Math Lessons B:2 does not have the same format as the other math lessons. Instead, the information you need to teach this unique biblical approach to understanding fractions,
time, and money is in a Workbook Instructions & Answer Key format.
SPECIAL NOTICE ...
This book is included in Math Kit B (Part 005HS) and Add-On Kit B (Part 005AO).
This biblical study of fractions, time, and money (Parts 532 + 533) would be an excellent addition for any early math program.
The study of fractions serves as a reminder that God wants us to give our "whole" heart to
Christ, not just "part" of it. Since time was created for God's purposes, He wants
us to learn how to use time wisely for His glory. Money had its roots in the bartering
system of Abraham's era. Then came the system of weights and measures which gradually led to the Old and New Testament's coinage. Whether rich or poor, God wants all of His children
to be wise stewards of the resources He provides in order to
lay up "treasures in heaven."
In addition to Math Lessons B:2, you need:
- Christ-Centered Math Workbook: Level B:2
K5/B1st students can usually complete Math Levels A and B:1 in a
year. Some students can also finish Level B:2. More advanced K5/B1st have
even finished Levels A, B, and C in a typical school year,
or shortly thereafter. For the best results, teach in sequence according
to whatever pacing lovingly challenges your student's God-given capabilities.
