Biblical Integration Information:
God has chosen to reveal truths about His nature and ways in the Created world. The complex patterns, designs, and relationships discovered in the study of mathematics points to God’s nature and ways. As we explore, discover, verify, and catalogue the known truths of His universe, dive into the unknown, make decisions, identify, assess, and solve problems around us, and seek to understand more about the universe God has made and the role of humans in it, God is glorified. The study of mathematics leads us into a deeper understanding of our Creator and appreciation for HIs provision and wisdom as we use this knowledge as a tool to have dominion over and care for the natural world.
