“God uses mathematics in everything He makes. He makes things in multiples of sevens, elevens, and forties. Everything that God does, He does according to mathematics: the writing of His Bible, the making of Arcturus and establishing the circuit of the earth. He imparts some of that wonderful knowledge to us that we may know something about His grace and love for us in this respect.” Asa Sparks
Students are developing their skills in Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. They begin to understand that the number concept began with God, and the investigation and understanding of His order can help us appreciate His creation and precision. Students build on their knowledge, beginning with a deep understanding of numbers to ten, then numbers to twenty and beyond and they begin to develop understanding in connecting names, numerals and quantities.
Students investigate length, mass, capacity, time, position and shape, and begin to use mathematical language to explain their thinking. They make connections and build on mathematical relationship in everyday life and begin to develop fluency in counting numbers in sequences, continuing patterns and comparing aspects of measurement. Students learn to create and interpret simple data displays. They also begin to develop reasoning in explaining comparisons of quantities, creating patterns, explaining processes as well as develop problem-solving strategies while using materials to model authentic solutions.
