Biblical Math Workshops/Homeschool Workshops

Looking for biblical math information? Please visit our biblical math page for information and resources.

A Note from Katherine: Over the last decade, I’ve been honored to share on teaching math from a biblical worldview, along with various other topics. I love helping parents understand the worldview battle in math and be encouraged that the God who created it can help them teach it. Practical information and helpful ideas are presented within the framework of the big picture of how biblical principles truly can transform our view of math. Both in math and other topics, my workshops also include honest looks at the struggles I and my family have had—at the truths and reality of God’s grace that’s offered to us all.

Feedback

(Additional feedback and references available upon request.)

“I realized I had a neutral view of math. I suppose I never really considered it could be taught from a biblical perspective…I love that all the glory is given to God.”
– Shannon Kleckner, homeschool mom

“This speech was extremely encouraging for me! Just what I needed to hear at this point in my life. It especially spoke to me since the words came from a homeschool graduate herself, and not a homeschool mom!”
Kim Wood, homeschool mom

“I loved her honesty and transparency. Very encouraging to hear a child’s perspective!”

“I loved the encouragement to seek our amazing God in every area of life. What a wonderful reminder—and good practical advice on implementation in the area of mathematics.”

“Katherine’s information is transforming my view of math!”

Workshop Descriptions

Math from a Biblical Worldview?
We see God’s hand in science and history, but what about in math? While most of us have come to look upon math as “neutral,” it’s not! Worldviews do matter in math—and there’s much more to looking at math from a biblical worldview than adding a scripture or Bible word problem to the lesson. Come discover biblical principles that make math come alive and give math meaning, helping children really understand what they’re learning. Find out how “neutral” presentations are really not neutral. Leave equipped to begin looking at and teaching math from a new perspective!

Revealing Arithmetic
How can counting, addition, multiplication, fractions, exponents, and other concepts in arithmetic be taught in such a way that children learn to see and use them as a God-given tool—and worship the Lord in math? In this workshop, Katherine will explore several arithmetic concepts, offering ideas and inspiration to help you transform your math class.

Revealing Geometry
What worldview is coming across in your student’s geometry class? In this workshop, Katherine looks past the proofs and constructions we typically see as geometry, offering ideas on how to teach it as a real-life, God-given tool that points us to the Creator. We’ll touch on various concepts, from basic shape identification up to proofs and theorems.

Revealing Algebra
Overwhelmed by variables and exponents? In this workshop, Katherine cuts through the confusion, revealing algebra for what it is: a method of recording the consistencies God created and sustained. Leave with a new outlook on algebra and ideas on how to teach it from a biblical perspective.

Homeschooling: God Is Sufficient
Unsure of your ability to homeschool your children? Feel like giving up on a rebellious child? Carrying concerns about some aspect of homeschooling? Join Katherine, a homeschool graduate, as she reflects back on her homeschooling years, including periods of rebellion and isolation. Interwoven with personal examples, Katherine shares the scripture verses and lessons that God gave her family during her homeschooling years. Be encouraged that God is sufficient for whatever you might be facing.
