Why do we learn
Mathematics?
What do I love about Mathematics?
Mathematics helps us understand
more fully God’s beautiful creation
Why did God create stars?
How many stars are there?
How do we know anything about stars?
What makes snowflakes so
beautiful?
Why did God do this?
Truth and
constancy
Mathematics is always true.
• It builds truth upon truth.
• It is reliable
• Its laws are unchanging in a dynamic world
Humans are made in God’s image - we use mathematics
to create beauty to bless others
We use mathematics to serve others in
our community
Is this a problem?
What can we do
about it?
Mathematics contains
powerful concepts
For example, it helps us:
• Understand disease
• Launch (and land) rockets
• With Economics, Engineering,
Agriculture…
• With visual art, music, dance,
theatre…
Numbers
themselves
are
beautiful!

What is the purpose of studying mathematics?

Editor's Notes

  1. What is the story behind each of these messages? If we continue tell students that “they need to study this because it’s in the test” – we are expressing the worldview that tests are important. However why are tests important? By implication why is it important to do well in a test? For the future? Why? Why is any of this learning important?
