Kuyers Mathematics Online
Kuyers Mathematics is a mathematics curriculum resource funded by the Kuyers Institute for Christian Teaching and Learning. It is a fresh approach to mathematics, designed to be both interesting and applicable to the world we live in. It integrates a Christian approach, using mathematics to think about and better understand God, his creation, and our place and calling in the world.
These lessons are designed to supplement and enrich a high-school level mathematics curriculum. They may be used as a whole or selectively to enhance students' understanding of topics and their ability to connect these topics with their lives as Christians. Topics range from the philosophical—why a study of math is important—to the beautiful—examining the Fibonacci numbers and the golden spiral, and from the theoretical—examining hypercubes to understand higher dimensions—to the applied—calculating how compounding interest helps one save for retirement.
The lessons can be accessed here. They are offered free of charge to be used in the classroom setting or with students on an individual basis.
We hope you will find these lessons useful. If you have questions or suggestions, we would appreciate hearing from you.
The Kuyers Math curriculum was recently featured in the Calvin College President's Report 2008.
