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.
The curriculum was developed so that students worldwide would have access to free mathematics lessons with a strong Christian perspective. A team of experienced high school math teachers collaborated with several professors of mathematics to create the lessons that are offered here. The lessons are free for use in either the classroom setting or with students one-on-one. We only ask that you not republish the lessons in any way without written permission.
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.
