Similar to the languages that connect us as human beings and allow us to share concepts and ideas, mathematics is a universal language that has reached into every civilization and culture in the recorded history of humankind. Why is that? Mathematics is the language in which God has written the universe. -Galileo  

The homeschool math curriculum you use in the elementary grades will set the tone for your child’s math experience for years to come. Math is not a series of abstract symbols to be memorized but rather a communication tool to be mastered to discover the mysteries of Creation. Just as we communicate our thoughts and feelings with the 26 symbols of our alphabet, mathematical symbols expand on our knowledge of our world and our unique place within it.

5 Key Components of Apologia’s Homeschool Math Curriculum:

FUN! The design of each lesson and the carefully crafted activities present math as an accessible and exciting subject. If students are flipping ahead to see what’s next, they will bring enthusiasm and openness to each new lesson. These positive emotions make it easier for their brains to soak up the content.

Carefully Crafted Conceptual Content. The progression of each unit is carefully mapped out to offer just the right level of challenge each day. At the end of each unit, students apply what they learned to the fields of art, science, or business through a cumulative project.  

Skills Practice. At the elementary level, a sizeable part of the content includes math facts that must be memorized. Other skills must be rehearsed over a longer period of time for mastery to occur. Main skills are introduced in each lesson and strategically practiced 5-10 minutes a day. 

Ease of Use. The structure is simple: each day, complete the lesson & skills practice on the daily schedule. The answer key contains the answers, teacher’s notes, suggestions for the lessons, and reusable pages you need to complete the course.  

Christian Connection. Absolutely! Each unit in Exploring Creation with Mathematics begins with a Seeing Our Creator section that connects God to the concepts the student will be learning. Math is part of creation, and it mirrors aspects of God’s character; His beauty, faithfulness, and love can all be seen when studying math.
