Numbers in the Bible: A Look at Biblical Numerology – Recently, there has been a growing interest in the biblical numerology. More and more websites have appeared with lists of what different numbers in the Bible might represent. We need to be very careful when attempting to draw meaning from numbers in the Bible.
Meaning of Numbers in the Bible/Scripture?– Numbers in scripture have intrigued many theologians and laymen alike. However, we need to be very careful when attempting to draw meaning from numbers in the Bible. You can read more about why we feel this way on our biblical meaning of numbers page. While I think we need to be very careful about trying to assign a meaning to numbers in the Bible, I believe scripture gives us principles that can help us understand the world around us–including numbers!

Table Math – Did you know you could teach nearly every math concept using just the objects on a table?
Teaching Math Sets by Organizing – As a student, I always used to struggle when my math book began talking about counting numbers, whole numbers, real numbers, irrational numbers, and other number groups.
