## Off to a great start with Christ-Centered Math!

### Recommended For:

- Older 3's (AK3)
- Young 4's (K4)

The Math Beginner's Kit A is great for teaching young 4's and older 3's a couple of days per week.

**Notice to Math Edition 1 Users:** If you own the original *Math Lessons Guide A* and *Math Lessons Guide B*, the Home School workbooks (Levels A, B:1, B:2, and C) are **not compatible**. To purchase Edition 1's *Math Workbook A*, **order Part 401**. For Edition 1's *Math Workbook B*, **order Part 403**.

### SPECIAL NOTICE ...

For older K4's, K5's, or Beginning 1st math students, order Math Kit B (Part 005HS) which includes Level A items plus Levels B:1 and B:2.

NOTE: Every beginning math student should complete Level A before Level B:1.

## Christ-Centered Math Is Uniquely Scriptural!

Christ-Centered Math derives its teaching content from
mathematical truths rooted in Scripture. For example, the first thing God did in Creation week was to *add* something to the
nothing that existed---the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). Because addition is the basis of all other mathematical operations, the Level A lessons begin by introducing addition concepts 1-10. Since our Creator also *counted* when He numbered the days of the week, as Math Workbook A students learn number concepts 1-10 ("how many," number identification, and number recall), they will count pictures of some things God made during Creation week.

### Christ-Centered Math Also Builds Godly Character!

Christ-Centered Math lessons A, B, and C include CHARACTER TRAINING TIPS
that illustrate ways to develop godly qualities like those reflected by the
animal families of our Christ-Centered Math Flashcards 1-10 Set (included in the Math Master Guide). Through interesting stories plus Scripture songs and hymns on the
Animal Stories CD (Part 501), children are encouraged to ask Jesus to develop
godly traits in *them* like He has in these Animal Families:

- ONE Penguin–
**Generosity**
- TWO Deer–
**Flexibility**
- THREE Bear–
**Loyalty**
- FOUR Beaver–
**Orderliness**
- FIVE Skunk–
**Courage**
- SIX Badger–
**Decisiveness**
- SEVEN Chickadee–
**Joyfulness**
- EIGHT Crow–
**Responsibility**
- NINE Squirrel–
**Endurance**
- TEN Moth–
**Determination**

**Note:** The story illustrations and character quality definitions were adapted from
*Character Sketches Vol. I and II* (used by permission from the Institute in Basic
Life Principles).
