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.
