PROVIDING PRECISION AND ORDER IN AN EVER-CHANGING WORLD
Mathematics witnesses to God’s immanence in the orderly finitude of the material universe and to His transcendence beyond that universe unto infinity. Mathematics orients students’ minds to God’s mind, cultivating in them appreciation, knowledge, and mastery of math facts, computation, real life math applications, and development of logical thinking. Mathematics also cultivates discipline in students, enabling them to participate in the scientific and technological stewardship of this world for the service of God and man. Mathematics instruction at Providence carefully reinforces every skill and concept learned by not dropping the concepts once they are covered but rather returning to them recursively, and with increasing complexity, throughout the school year.
Saxon Math is used one year above grade level in Classes One through Four. Daily math computation drills are an important part of the curriculum.
