Approach Math with Confidence

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

Engaging, Conversational Lessons

Principles of Mathematics Book 2 focuses on pre-algebra 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 algebra in a logical, step-by-step way that helps them 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 2, 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 2 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 2 lays a solid foundation—both academically and spiritually—as your student prepares for high school algebra! Students will study pre-algebra concepts, further develop their problem-solving skills, see how algebraic concepts are applied in a practical way to everyday life, and strengthen their faith!

In Principles of Mathematics Book 2 your student will:

  • Explore pre-algebra
  • Strengthen critical thinking skills
  • Discover why we study math—and why it matters to each of us
  • Transform their view of math through a Biblical Worldview
  • Approach mathematics as a tool for exploring & describing God's universe

Great program
Review by Heather
The second year continues to build from the first year and my son's confidence in math grew. I think he will be very well prepared for high school math classes
Great math
Review by marilyn
Good textbook with a strong Christian worldview! Sometimes it would be helpful if there was a few more examples of problems in explaining of things.
My son is actually learning math!
Review by AJ
This book is laid out perfectly. I love the fact that it brings in a biblical view. We use this with the Academy videos and its amazing how much my son is learning! This is the first book we bought as we made the switch to homeschooling, and I am brown away each day with how much he retains vs mainstream school! I do wish there was a 4 day a week schedule option, I've had to rearrange it and make our own schedule, but that's a minor thing.
Great curriculum!
Review by Ashley
Great math curriculum. Mine mostly watches the teaching videos instead of reading the book. That usually works well. He does sometimes have trouble and ask me for help. My new rule has been to always go back to the text book to check first. Then if he's still struggling, call on me. At that point, after reviewing the text, he usually has it down without needing me.
This book is a game changer.. Literally!!
Review by Jill
Math was always a little hard for my son but this book has changed everything!! His interest has peaked!
Helped my son MASTER Skills for Algebra
Review by Stacey B
My son used MB Math for the first time this past year and he loved it. It helped him master some concepts leading him confidently into Algebra. We are thankful we found this program!
Review by Andrea
This has been a life saver for us. My middle school son was behind in math and through using this series (POM 1 & 2) he has been able to catch up and has a very strong foundation going into HS math.
Thank You Masterbooks!
Review by Lana
My daughter just completed Principles of Math 1 and it was a total game changer. This math has seem to really restore her confidence and fill some gaps too.
Favorite Math
Review by Sara
My 8th grader has never enjoyed math even though the concepts come easily to him. He loves science but was afraid to pursue a career in a science field because he knew he'd need a lot of math. This program has been a game changer! He works completely independently to learn the math lessons and complete the assignments. He doesn't get bored with endless repetition, yet he learns and retains the concepts just as easily.
Could they make more?
Review by Christina
My son has tried several different Math curriculums and we finally found POM. It explains everything thoroughly and he was able to self teach and do well! Seriously though, could they keep making more levels?
