As a hands-on, interactive elementary math curriculum, Exploring Creation with Mathematics, Level 2 was designed to take the student on a journey to learn how numbers help us describe our world and our universe. In level 2, students dig deeper into place value, patterns, addition, subtraction, money, time, measurement, data and graphs, and geometry.

Exploring Creation with Mathematics, Level 2 was designed to cultivate a love of numbers while building on a student’s ability to use numbers and mathematical symbols. Filled with activities, projects, and games that help students understand how they can manipulate numbers as they investigate the world, students will also see the greater connections between our world and our God.
Continuing a rich introduction to elementary math, Level 2 covers adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers, telling time, manipulating money, and learning more about measurement, data collection, and geometry, including 3D shapes. Utilizing a mastery approach, the Exploring Creation with Mathematics Series helps your student advance strategically through lessons, projects, and reviews, enabling them to apply the math they have learned to their lives.
In this course your student will find:
- Seeing Our Creator devotionals, at the beginning of each unit, connect the math concepts your child will learn to God and His creation
- A suggested daily schedule, with thoughtful pacing through concepts that reflect a systematic progression from one skill to the next, is most important for eliminating frustration
- Plenty of skills practice, including fresh and exciting easy-to-set-up games to help ensure that your child is prepared for the next level of math concepts introduced
- Hands-on activities, games, and projects using the provided activity sheets and everyday household products that give your child tangible connections to the abstract concepts learned
- Colorful and age-appropriate lesson layouts and page design make learning more inviting for your student
- Options and suggestions for adjusting a lesson if your child is struggling or if your child is advancing quickly through the material are provided
- Supply lists, answers to the problems, teaching tips, and suggestions for taking an activity further are also given
