* Why do we teach math?*

Math is everywhere!

Whether your child will grow up to be a mechanical engineer or a stay at home mom, kids need to learn their math facts.

Basic Math Skills necessary for life:

- adding/subtracting
- multiplying/dividing
- measuring to the nearest 32nd of an inch, or millimeter (English and metrics)
- Basic geometry: shapes and solid figures (cone, sphere, prism)
- finding area and perimeter.

My Opinion:

God is a mathematician!

Anything that is important to Him is important to us and therefore worthy to teach to our children.

Lisa Nelson says

you are absolutely right. Anybody who argues with me about teaching math – I look at them like they have 4 heads. The kids need it – definitely. You know, you never ever know what you are going to do in life – or where life might take you.

Math is absolutely – positively necessary.

Bekki says

Agreed. Plus, there is no easier time to learn the foundations of math than childhood.

Do you use a math curriculum or do you just teach foundations like facts, fractions, etc?
