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 contains LightUnit answers, oral exercises, hand-on activities, teaching tips, and alternate tests, and is required for the course.
