**Inspire Confidence in Math**

Mathematical terms and concepts can seem so complex and intimidating as students transition from the upper elementary years to Jr High. Katherine Hannon's down-to-earth style and conversational tone sets students at ease and inspires them to approach all those terms and concepts with confidence. She imparts an understanding that each simply describe a useful tool we can put to use in everyday life, history, science, art, music, and more!

**Engaging, Conversational Lessons**

*Principles of Mathematics* focuses on mathematical concepts and emphasizes the practical application of it. Students learn both the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of math through engaging, conversational lessons. This approach firms up foundational math concepts and prepares students for upper-level math in a logical, step-by-step way. This helps the student understand concepts, build problem-solving skills, and see how different aspects of math connect.

**Incredibly Faith Building**

“Every time you solve a math problem, you’re relying on the underlying consistency present in math. Any time you see that math still operates consistently, it’s testifying that God is still on His throne, faithfully holding all things together.” – **Katherine Hannon**

In *Principles of Mathematics Book 1*, each lesson and exercise leads the student towards understanding the character and attributes of God through the study of math history, concepts, and application.

*Principles of Mathematics Book 1* goes beyond adding a Bible verse or story to math instruction, it actively teaches and describes how the consistencies and creativity we see in mathematical concepts proclaim the faithful consistency of God Himself and points students towards understanding math through a Biblical worldview.

**Excellent High School Preparation**

POM 1

Review by
Nikki

I love the POM for my sixth grader. Things in math that I didn’t totally grasp as a child, have been made much clearer by learning the principles behind the math. Definitely grateful I went with this for my child.

great!

Review by
Anonymous middle schooler

I enjoyed it a lot. helpful and easy to grasp. all concepts build over time very well. no problems. the only thing, some of the problems are not solved correctly and give the wrong answer. it happened very rarely. great!

Good cirriculmn

Review by
Morgie

My kid struggles heavily with math. There is alot of reading and I thought it would be a little overwhelming but so far so good. We are going to push through and I love that they put God even in the math lessons

My kid is excelling with this course!

Review by
Anika

To begin, I am not great at math and I've worried about how to teach my kid with my limitations. My daughter went through POM1 in 7th grade and is is excelling in math. Even if I don't 100% get it, the book walks us through it and we figure it out together. She's great at math, but this course is definitely bringing her above grade level.

Awesome for our 10th grader!

Review by
Shun

Our son has excelled using this math book! I was worried that he would be overwhelmed with this curriculum since math has been a challenge for him since elementary school. We began homeschooling when he was in middle school but this year with this math book he has grown leaps and bounds. His understanding has opened up! The pace of the lessons, the way the material is broken down, the concentration of biblical application of math, have all increased his confidence. We were not able to do the second book and will be moving on to Algebra 1, but since using the book and the Master Books Academy Video lessons I know he will be ready!

Perfect for struggling math learners and strong math kiddos alike!

Review by
Kristal

I LOVED this book. My 7th and 8th grade girls did this together this year. My 7th grader is good at math and my 8th grader is not (and doesn't want to be). I was a bit concerned but the year went great and they learned so much! The lessons are very comprehensive, there is an option to add Masterbooks Academy but we did not need it. Even my daughter who struggles with math caught on quicker than I anticipated and both girls did really well.

Would Recommend!

At first the reading seems overwhelming, but the further you get into it, you see the process. We had some struggles, but in the end, it all worked out.

I Can’t Believe This…

Review by
Betsy

…but I took four students through this course at one time. They were ages 10, 11, 12, and 13. Two of them were in 5th grade and two of them were in 7th grade.

The 5th grade children are both gifted in math. I would not suggest using this before 7th grade unless your student is very strong in math. I would not suggest using it with 5th grade students unless they are blow-your mind-gifted.

The math starts out with a solid review of elementary school math. I love that because you have a solid start and can determine early on if the child has holes that need tending to. If so, switching to MLFLE 5 or 6 are fantastic options and then you have this curriculum for later. You can probably avoid this trouble by taking the placement test.

I watched my children grow in confidence with this curriculum and we all loved the integration of Bible. We loved seeing how God created math and our world with a beautiful design. My students were able to complete this curriculum together with minimal help from me. We did not use the Master Books Academy videos for this level, but when my younger children use this curriculum, I plan to use the videos. We did use them for level 2 and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

My dear friend who was an AP Calculus teacher led me to this program. I never heard of it before her. I am so thankful she did!

Excellent Series

Heidi

My child was not too keen on math and this book has completely changed her perspective on math. She now gets through lessons without tears and enjoys math!

LOVE IT!

Review by
Kimmy

I absolutely love the POM series for my son. It explains it in a way where it is understandable, it is applicable, and it makes it fun to learn. I am learning math the correct way and it makes math fun for ME! If I had this curriculum growing up, this would have made math easier and more accessible for me! Can't give this enough stars!!
