# SHORMANN MATH OVERVIEW

Standing on the shoulders of math giants like Euclid, Euler, and Newton, together with John Saxon’s proven teaching methods, Dr. Shormann has published a 21 st math curriculum that teaches all the concepts on the ACT and the redesigned PSAT & SAT in a state of-the-art eLearning system Featuring expert video instruction, automated grading, video solutions, and Q&A email support, Shormann Math students build long-term retention and fluency (speed and accuracy) faster and easier.

Shormann Math teaches math as the language of science and therefore, an important tool for unlocking mysteries and revealing the amazing beauty found in God’s creation. Created in His image (Genesis 1:26), we are designed by God to use this tool to be creative and to engage in fruitful, productive activities (Genesis 1:28).

Most mathematics curricula ignore math history. Ideas have consequences, and studying history often reveals which ideas are worth repeating and which ones aren’t. Isaac Newton, author of the most famous science book ever written (The Principia), based the format of his book off of Euclid’s Elements, the most famous math book ever written. Shormann Math's format is based off Euclid’s and Newton’s famous works, stating rules and definitions up front, and using these as the building blocks to learn new concepts.

Whether you are using a classical, trivium/quadrivium approach to your child’s education,

understanding mathematics within a biblical, historical framework will help students make more sense of what they are learning and why they are learning it. Shormann Math will train students to become skillful at using mathematics in a way that will help them become productive members of God’s world, using their talents to serve Him by serving others.
