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.
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 Workbook B:1, you need a:
- Christ-Centered Math Workbook: Level B:2 (Part 533)
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.
