Math was not a strong suit for me in school and I didn't "like" math that much. I often remember thinking "Why do I have to learn all this stuff?" It seemed like just a bunch of rules and formulas and things that made little sense to me because they had no tie to anything "important" in my mind at the time. I would memorize things just enough to pass a test and then forget it all afterwards. I didn't see the bigger picture to math. However, if someone had told me that math was a view into the mind of God and that it showed me how God ordered the world to work and the way in which God sustained His universe...I might have been more interested and understood the "why bother" to learning math! Well, someone has shown me those things about math and more....it's Katherine Loop! She has written a homeschool resource that I think is a must have for any Christian homeschooling parent endeavoring to teach math to their children Biblically! Katherine's written and spoken words will challenge you personally, as you read and evaluate how you may find you really see math yourself and how you may be teaching it to your children. She will also help you to see God in the world around you in a new and more meaningful way. Prior to reading her book I would have answered yes to the question "Are you teaching your children math Biblically?" but now I realize how short sighted I was, thinking I had been achieving that goal. Her book spurs you on to realize that there is so much more to how you can see math and how you can teach your children to see AND love math!
