Lesson Plans: The lesson plans on this website follow the garden allegory method of learning. The textbook assignments are coordinated with online video tutorials and interactive web pages to assist the student in understanding math concepts. Click on the side bar links to access the lesson plans. Why we use the garden allegory for math: 1. Increase memory retention of math concepts. When students take a math principle through the full process of the garden allegory and then "share the harvest" by teaching the concept to someone else, they develop a deeper understanding of the principles. 2. Learn how to learn: The garden allegory can be applied to all learning. Students may use this process to learn a math concept, a scientific principle, or a religious doctrine. They may also use this process to develop a virtue in their character. By repeating the process with each math lesson, students are learning how to learn any subject that interests them. 3. Learn to govern self with correct principles: Math is a great subject to develop skills in selfgovernance. When students learn and apply math principles, they discover they can trust in consistent and accurate results. This idea can be carried over into other areas of life, where the application of correct principles in relationships, in behavior, in leadership, or in spiritual matters will yield consistent and reliable results.
Lesson Structure: The garden allegory will be applied to each lesson. However, to avoid confusion, the terms identifying each step will be listed as follows:
