Elizabeth Collins, MA Ed
Elizabeth Collins holds a MA Ed in Education and a MS in Biology from East Carolina University. Her goal in teaching this class is to not only learn mathematical concepts and principles but to also understand how mathematics fits into God’s plan and design for each of us. The creation of God is one of order and precision. We utilize math everyday in our lives – we orchestrate our daily schedule with time, we pay bills, we logically sort information to solve everyday situations and problems. Math is all around us everyday from the most basic tasks to very complex thinking. Through the study of mathematics we can begin to understand the nature of God as He reveals His calculated design through scripture and our daily lives.
Galileo sums it well in saying that, ““Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe.”
Psalm 90:12 states, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
Through the study of mathematics we can understand God – a God of order, precision, and eternal design.
