After children turn 8 years old they are ready to develop specific math skills and demonstrate their understanding of math principles. We believe students will have a better foundation in mathematics if they understand how God uses numbers, shapes and patterns to bring order to the universe. The Kimber Academy textbooks

**Heavenly Father's Favorite Numbers**help students see these heavenly patterns. We encourage all families to consider reviewing the exercises in these textbooks before advancing into other math studies.
