**Inspire Confidence in Math**

Mathematical terms and concepts can seem so complex and intimidating as students transition from the upper elementary years to Jr High—Katherine Loop’s down-to-earth style and conversational tone sets students as ease and inspires them to approach all those terms and concepts with confidence and an understanding that each simply describe a useful tool we can put to use in everyday life, history, science, art, music, and more!

**Engaging, Conversational Lessons**

Principles of Mathematics focuses on mathematical concepts and emphasizes practical application, teaching your student both the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of math through engaging, conversational lessons. This approach firms up foundational math concepts and prepares students for upper-level math in a logical, step-by-step way that helps students understand concepts, build problem-solving skills, and see how different aspects of math connect.

**Incredibly Faith Building**

“Every time you solve a math problem, you’re relying on the underlying consistency present in math. Any time you see that math still operates consistently, it’s testifying that God is still on His throne, faithfully holding all things together.” – **Katherine Loop**

In *Principles of Mathematics Book 1*, each lesson and exercise leads your student towards understanding the character and attributes of God through the study of math history, concepts, and application.

*Principles of Mathematics Book 1* goes beyond adding a Bible verse or story to math instruction, it actively teaches and describes how the consistencies and creativity we see in mathematical concepts proclaim the faithful consistency of God Himself and points students towards understanding math through a Biblical worldview.

**Excellent High School Preparation**

*Principles of Mathematics Book 1* lays a solid foundation—both academically and spiritually—as your student prepares for High School math! Students will study concepts of arithmetic and geometry, further develop their problem-solving skills, see how mathematical concepts are applied in a practical way to everyday life, and strengthen their faith!

**In Principles of Mathematics Book 1 your student will:**

- Explore arithmetic & geometry

Great history of math and biblical worldview

Review by
Eileen

I really wanted to like this, but it was not a good fit for my son. He wasn’t able to do the reading by himself (he has struggled with reading), so I wound up reading it to him due to there being so much info for each day; I enjoyed it though due to learning the Math history of certain concepts and how it’s used throughout Gods creation! It also felt like it was a huge jump from 6th grade MLFLE- especially amount of work. Granted 7th grade is always a step up in most cases.

It's a yes for us

Review by

Pom math has been a game change for my teen it teaches math from a biblical perspective and she's able to work at her pace. Highly recommend both books

One of my favorites

Review by
Tabitha

This has been one of my favorite math curricula to use. I have only used it with one of my children so far but I am hopeful that it will work with my middle child soon!!

Really enjoyed

Review by
Sarah

I think I have a household of math haters if I’m honest. I do like the repetitiveness of this book. It was easy to understand and made it a bit easier to get through math. I’d recommend.

This program was very thorough and well written

Review by
Heather

As far as math text books go, I found this curriculum to be easy to read and understand. It was consistent and my son really enjoyed the program and did very well.

Excellent!

Review by
Stacey

The well-planned and sequenced lessons will be just what we need. We are using this rather late because of learning/personality issues, but it will make learning mathematics oh-so-much easier.

Biblical math

Review by
Jessica

Katherine writes how math ties in with God’s design. It makes learning math more fun and engaging.

Not as clear as it should be

Review by
JH

I'd hoped to like this curriculum more than I do. The maths in it is top notch and progresses in a sensible fashion, and the God-centredness is vital, but the presentation of concepts is wordy and repetitive. It gets my girl confused. I have to read ahead myself and then put it in my own words, more simply and with more clarity. Also, there isn't enough room in the worksheets to write complete answers for many multi-step problems. It's harder to work through than it should be. Sorry, I had high hopes and wanted to like it more.

I enjoy teaching it

Review by
Stephanie

I was really nervous to have my seventh grader start this course, I’m not very math inclined to teach high levels of math. In addition to both this book in the teachers guide I also purchased a Master Books Academy class. We found that there was a bit too much reading for us all at one time, so what we did was watch the class video, read it together, then I teach it to my student and he’s actually enjoying math.

Very Happy

Review by
Pamela

This math program has been wonderful for our family. I can give my son the sheet and the books teaches him everything he needs to know. When he does have questions it has also been easy for me to look through the chapter and know what I need to tell my son to help him with his lessons. We have struggled with math and this yr has been different and I am so glad.
