Math

  • Grade 1

    Sunrise Edition

    Sunrise Math 100 lays a foundation for many of the major math concepts the student will meet during his lifetime. Each lesson introduces one or more bite-sized new number concepts. Most of the student work consists of continuous review to ensure that the concepts stick. The child experiences math as a whole rather than as isolated skills.

    Interspersed with basic number skills are forays into geometry, our money system, mental math, and number patterns. Practical story problems with a Biblical worldview relate math to real life. The U.S. and the metric measurement systems are emphasized equally. Daily speed drills, oral drills, and flash-card exercises help cement the basic addition/subtraction facts from 1-20.

    The Teacher's Guide provides answers to the LightUnits, ideas, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests and is required for the course.

  • Grade 2

    Sunrise Edition

    Math LightUnit 201 reviews concepts that should be adequately mastered in order to succeed in Level 200. It can be used as a diagnostic tool.

    The remaining nine LightUnits teach new skills and concepts such as telling time, reading simple graphs, adding/subtracting multi-digit numbers with carrying/borrowing, working with money, basic fraction concepts, and measurement in both the U.S. and metric systems.

    Daily review on the addition/subtraction facts from 1-20 ensures mastery. Multiplication is introduced in Math 206, and by the end of the course, students have memorized the tables for 0, 1, 2, 5, and 10. Each lesson contains a realistic story problem or two using a theme (which varies with each LightUnit) such as pets, grandparents, and springtime.

    The Teacher's Guide provides ideas, useful appendices, alternate LightUnit tests, and answers to the LightUnits. Answer keys are optional if the Teacher's Guide is purchased.

  • Grade 3

    Sunrise Edition

    Math LightUnit 301 reviews concepts that should be adequately mastered in order to succeed in Math 300. It can be used as a diagnostic tool.

    The remaining LightUnits review previously taught concepts in Math 200 and introduce new skills and concepts in incremental, continuously reviewed steps. We teach the metric system simultaneously with the U.S. system of measurement. Students acquire a full understanding of both systems.

    Addition/subtraction flash cards and multiplication/division flash cards are required for this course. By the end of the course, students should have memorized the multiplication tables up to 10.

    Each LightUnit incorporates a theme into its daily story problems, adding a practical component to math. Themes in Math 300 include insects, cooking, the ocean, and a family vacation to Yellowstone National Park.

    The Teacher's Guide provides answers to the LightUnits, ideas, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests. Answer keys are optional if the Teacher's Guide is purchased.
