Elementary and Jr. High Mathematics

(Kindergarten through Grade 8)


This is your best resource for providing your students with appropriate challenge while connecting the study of Mathematics to real life.

Purposeful Design Mathematics series is designed to strengthen teachers' insights about mathematics education and to assist them in the practicalities of lesson preparation with enough varied activities to suit a wide range of students and classes.

 
 
 

Purposeful Design Mathematics emphasizes skill development and concept understanding. A primary goal of Purposeful Design Mathematics is for students to become skilled in mathematical algorithims—the processes and formulas for doing math accurately—but more importantly for students to develop a strong and deep understanding of the math concepts being studied, that is, they will not only get right answers but they will be able to explain why the answers are correct as well.

 
 Features and components of this series: 
  • Prominent use of manipulatives incorporating hands-on instruction
  • Devotional features drawing students to God as Creator
  • Themes that integrate the patterns and numbers of God's creation
  • Supplemental exercises—books of blackline masters for grades 1, 2, and 3—containing activities for review, enrichment, and recovery.
  • Real-life examples providing relevancy for students
  • Lesson design focusing on success for all students


Teacher  Resources:

Purposeful Design Publications provides trainings and webinars are for all teachers who are currently teaching the Purposeful Design Math or Science, those who will be adopting it soon. Click here to learn more about the these webinars and trainings.
