# Free Workshop Invite, Book Update, Math Information Online

Things have been piling up to post, so this post will contain quite a few different things.

Free Workshop
First off, I wanted to invite you all to attend a workshop this afternoon (Tuesday, March 18, 2008) at 1:00 p.m. CST I’ll be giving on teaching math biblically. You can attend right from your computers–and it’s free! The workshop is being done through Cindy Rushton’s Ultimate Homeschool Expo as one of their free, pre-conference preview chats. The chat will be archived and available after the conference begins to attendees, but it’s only open to everyone this afternoon. To join, follow the instructions at the bottom of this post. (I apologize for the late notice.)

Math Book Update
Next, after several drafts and a name change, my math book is actually nearing completion! The book is now titled Revealing Arithmetic, and serves as a guide for teaching arithmetic concepts from a biblical worldview. Revealing Arithmetic will walk through teaching basic arithmetic concepts from counting clear through long division, offering an overview, example presentation, reinforcement ideas, and much more. Thank you all for your continual prayers.

Math Information Online
We recently posted an article adapted from Beyond Numbers to our site and reorganized some other math information. I hope you enjoy!

I also recently found an article on biblical math online I think you some of you might find helpful. Vern S. Poythress helpful, although more intellectual, essay titled, “A Biblical View of Mathematics” is available online at www.frame-poythress.org/poythress_articles/1976Biblical.htm.

Please Note: I’ve not had a chance to look at any of the other essays on this site or by Poythress to know their merit or theological content. I mention this particular article because it looked helpful.
