Advanced Beginning Math Program
- Advanced K5 (AK5)
- First Grade (1st)
Notice to Math Edition 1 Users: If you have the original Math Lessons Guide: Level A and Math Lessons Guide: Level B, 2011’s 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 Level B, order Part 403.
Christ-Centered Math Is Uniquely Scriptural!
Just as God designed a special dwelling place for Himself among men (the Tabernacle), so He has designed a special dwelling place for numbers. For example, most Bible scholars believe that the number 10 in Scripture signifies “perfection or completion of divine order”—which implies “nothing is lacking; the cycle is complete.” Therefore, Level C students will first study place value—1’s, 10’s, 100’s places—as preparation for learning the 11-18 addition/subtraction facts through a Base 10 system. Because our number system is composed of cycles of 10, mastering the 10 Moth Family’s “partners for 10” (9+1, 8+2, 7+3, etc.) will help students better understand and thus master the difficult teen combinations.
Skills Covered at Math Level C:
- Place Value (1’s, 10’s, 100’s Places)
- 2- and 3-digit Addition/Subtraction (No Renaming)
- Greater Than/Less Than to 999
- Identifying Missing Numbers in Sequence to 999
- Counting by 1’s, 2’s, 3’s, 4’s, 5’s, and 10’s
- Numeration (Reading and Writing Numbers 0-20)
- Adding Multiple Numbers
- 11-18 Addition/Subtraction Families
- Word Problems and Equation Theory
Math Kit C includes the following:
- Christ-Centered Math Lessons: Level C—Workbook Answer Key Included (Part 540)
- Christ-Centered Math Workbook: Level C (Part 541)
Note: A Place Value Pocket Chart (Part 520.1) and Snap Cubes (Part 520.2) are also used as a concrete reinforcement at Level C. Those were included in Math Kit A (Part 004HS) and Math Kit B (Part 005HS). Also available for use at Level C is an Interlocking Base 10 Blocks Set (Part 542) which contains 100 one’s units, 10 ten’s rods, 3 hundred’s flats. Additional Level C charts and/or visual aids are at Tabs 4 and 5 of the Christ-Centered Math Master Guide (Part 500).
Studying place value plus the difficult teen combinations is usually recommended for 1st Grade. However, some Advanced K5 students may even be capable of completing Math Levels A, B, and C within a typical school year, or shortly thereafter. For the best results, teach in sequence at whatever pace lovingly challenges your student’s God-given capabilities.
