The Pyramid Project is a two part project. The first semester focuses on the Four Inteligros (Truth, Logic and Reason, The Characteristics of a Scientist, Newtonian Math) and Geometry.
You can LOVE math!!! In this class you will learn to take on your own education and discover math and science through new eyes, filled with patterns, sequences, chaos, order, and excitement! You will discover more about yourself as you play games, do experiments, and learn through famous scientists and mathematicians a powerful method of learning that is filled with truth and logic. This class will be fascinating!
NOTE: We won’t be doing any specific level of math in this class. Youth will be encouraged to be more committed to doing more consistent work on their own level of math at home.
First Semester: Core book studies, “I wonders” — Students learn how to see patterns and use the language of math and apply it to the scriptures. Students are encouraged to wonder about the world around them and record it in a “Log Book” found in their student binder. Stories are told of the great mathematicians and scientists. They are given opportunities to give presentations and participate in simulations and experiments.
Second Semester: Introduction to Logic, Characteristics of a Scientist, Document Studies — Students continue applying the language of math to their scriptures and are encouraged to “wonder.” In addition, they are taught to follow lines of logic, apply the characteristics of a scientist, to discover and apply truth, experiment and make commitments to studying math consistently and with more vigor. They are given opportunities to give presentations and participate in simulations and experiments.
Abilities: Increasing study hours, gaining the habits of a Scientist, becoming a homesteader in their education, applying the Inteligro Method to daily living.
Mission: I have something unique to offer the world by applying the principles of truth found in the scriptures.
Vision: I understand that God is the source of revealed Truth that I can use as a standard to evaluate the things I observe and learn in the world.
What will my student get out of this class?
Skills: Follow a line of logic, recognize symbols, inspire themselves to do hard things, choose between goods, ask the right questions.
