Speak faith over…Math

We opened up our Math time with a quote from Keith Kressin’s book Understanding Mathematics: From Counting to Calculous. He writes, “Math…is a subject which is often either loved or hated. If the subject is hated, it is not the math, but the failure to understand the math that gives considerable frustration to the student” (page 1, section 1-1). This quote came on the heels of some pretty profound words spoken by one of our students when I asked a question to draw our hearts toward the word “faith” (our character quality for the day). Jacob answered something to the effect of, “We want to speak faith over our mind regarding Math.” Yes! Talk about perspective! Faith-filled.
