Mathematics: Is God Silent? Classical Education Made Approachable

Leigh A. Bortins discusses mathematics in classical education.

I would like to introduce a conversation about the philosophy of math as a Christian in the context of actual math problems taught to elementary-aged students. This talk uses simple math to exalt Christ.
