1st Grade Math

The purpose of first grade Math is to set the foundation where upper level math skills can continue to build upon.  The curriculum and its correlated materials teach that arithmetic is mostly all ruled-governed activities.  The common-sense approach fully accords with Scriptural principles about orderliness and authority.  The teaching materials for Math also abound with specific examples aimed at Christian character building.  The importance of mathematics in their everyday lives is instilled.
