Exploring Creation with Mathematics 1
Introducing Apologia’s homeschool math curriculum for elementary grades. This is a hands-on and rich introduction to elementary math.
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 our knowledge of our world and our unique place within it.
The Exploring Creation with Mathematics series utilizes a mastery approach with lots of review. The author, Kathryn Gomes, connects the topics using a built-in review with the skills practice sections. Hands-on projects introduce and reinforce concepts in a deeper way. The author moves through the material following a specific progression and 4-step approach. Each lesson utilizes problems and projects and begins with a tangible presentation, then moves through a pictorial presentation of the concept, followed by an abstract presentation, and finishes with an application activity. The projects apply math to the student’s life to foster an appreciation for math and help them look forward to doing math every day.
This course is a rich introduction to elementary math, Level 1 mathematics covers addition, subtraction, place value, measurement, data and graphing, and basic geometry.
