The four corners of Pyramid represent:
-Logic and Reasoning
-Habits of a Scientist
-Newtonian Math (which is the math everyone usually learns to hate!)
A few of the vital principles taught are:
-looking deeply at assumptions and challenging them when necessary
-seeking truth amidst a world of full of opposing voices
-understanding philosophy and propaganda
-learning to step back and think before acting
We are connecting math and science to the world around them and helping scholars to see the relevance so they have a reason to study it. Developing the habit to log one’s study is emphasized as they learn to emulate Nathaniel Bowditch and his amazing self-education depicted in Carry on, Mr. Bowditch. An alternative to the scientific method, called Making Connections, is also taught while they learn how great scientists of all times learned to wonder, see patterns, and ask the right question.
Throughout the course there is a growth in the scholars’ ability to think logically and to measure things they encounter in the world against their core book (any book that the student and his or her family uses as a foundation of truth.) They are taught many skills, such as how to find equations as they read the text! Many find the scientific experiments so enjoyable that they thirst for more. Mentors learn a whole new approach to math and science focused on a holistic method.
The study of the subject of truth; Its structure - Logic; Its method - Habits of a Scientist: and its language - Math. Learn how to use Logic, Science and Math in order to get to the truth. Second semester is Pyramid Project Philosophy, Reading and pondering on Philosophers past. Delving into the Sciences of Logic, Reasoning, Mathematics, and Geometry.
*Please note that age recommendations and prerequisites are not hard and fast. There is room to individualize as a scholar's needs dictate.
