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—and at the truths and reality of God’s grace that’s offered to us all.
Katherine also offers a talk with encouragement for young ladies, as well as additional topics upon request.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and sample CDs. We are based out of Atlanta, GA, but are willing to travel as the Lord leads.
Katherine [Loop] Hannon is a homeschool graduate and the author of various resources, including Principles of Mathematics, a biblical worldview junior high math program (with Algebra 2 coming in 2020!) published by Master Books. Understanding the biblical worldview in math made a tremendous difference in her life, and she’s been researching, writing, and speaking on math, as well as other topics for over a decade now. Her heart is to point people to “seek the Lord, and His strength” (Psalm 104:4) in everything.

“This made my whole weekend. I could go home now and feel encouraged in my faith and homeschool…Math is my “weak link” and I feel so encouraged that God will use my weakness to show himself strong.”
“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!”
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!
Math & God’s Creation
From sunflowers to giraffes to air pressure to light to the vast distances of space, math helps us explore God’s handiwork, seeing everywhere evidence of His wisdom, care, and faithfulness. Come explore fascinating glimpses of God’s handiwork…and see math in a whole new light!
Revealing Arithmetic from a Biblical Worldview
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 from a Biblical Worldview
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 from a Biblical Worldview
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.
Evangelism Is Great…It’s Just Not for Me – We want to see the lost come to Christ, but a lot of us feel very inadequate and scared when it comes to actually sharing our faith. Come be equipped and encouraged that you can share as Katherine shares her own journey of overcoming fear and reaching out, along with truths and suggestions.
Christ at the Center of Every Subject…Including Math! – There’s not a subject in which Christ cannot be our focus. Come be equipped and encouraged to keep your entire school day centered around the Lord and to teach your children to “Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually!” (Psalm 105:4 esv). Teach them not only the academics, but also the lifelong habit of running to Christ.
