To help homeschoolers teach the exciting but often challenging subjects of Math and Science, we have created a special Curriculum Bundle suitable for 3rd to 5th grades, that uses the classical, Biblically-based method of the Principle Approach. Apply the Principle Approach to teach fundamental math and science skills while you present an inspiring, character-building American literary classic.
Included in the bundle are two
Noah Plan® Curriculum Guides that will prepare you to teach these subjects from first principles to practical application, giving the student a real understanding of the material.
Also included in the bundle is a historical novel that enlivens the study of these subjects with an inspiring true story. Carry on, Mr. Bowditch tells how Nathaniel Bowditch, the early American mathematician, became the founder of modern maritime navigation. Although Bowditch had little formal education, through his self-directed study he taught himself calculus and Latin, and later went on to revolutionize the navigation of the seas by providing correct mathematical formulas and tables for sailors. This story gives math and science their rightful place as practical tools God gave us for taking dominion over the earth, as well as teaching Christian character and imbuing the student with a love of literature. Purchase the Math and Science Curriculum Bundle and receive The Journal Volume V as a free gift.
The Math and Science Curriculum Bundle includes:
The Noah Plan Mathematics Curriculum Guide (K-12), by Paul Ricciardi
A complete guide to developing a Biblical classical approach and method to mathematics. The Noah Plan® Mathematics Curriculum Guide (K-12) combines an American abacus-based math curriculum (K-4th grade) with a reasoning and problem solving-based middle school curriculum that unite the art of computation with the science of numbers. Algebra, geometry and calculus are presented as applied mathematics for higher level development. The Guide includes charts, lesson plans, resources and sample student notebook pages. Softcover, B&W, 81/2” X 11”, 176 pages.
The Noah Plan Biblical Foundations of Natural History
Employs the Principle Approach® in teaching and learning the sciences. The foundation and meaning of science is revealed in the Bible – the source of wisdom that inspired Kepler, Galileo, Newton and Maury. The authors of this guide express the real reason why Biblical and principled teaching provide internally, externally and eternally the missing ingredients of meaning and purpose within the study of natural history and natural philosophy collectively called science.
