Since math is the most likely of all your homeschool subjects to be taught and learned in an abstract way, you may very well see a corresponding lack of liveliness, interest, and enthusiasm for the subject. But you can make it more agreeable and inviting by infusing and enlivening it with a bit of character and personality. This enhancement, beyond being merely utilitarian, also touches on the true nature and deeper qualities of math.
The 4 temperaments were first discovered and used for medical and philosophical purposes some 2,500 years ago by Hippocrates and Plato, respectively. This concept resurfaced in the Middle Ages, and though the causal links between them and health and personality have not stood the test of time, more recent personality analysis via the 4 temperaments is effectively and widely used. They can be successfully applied to your homeschool math curriculum as well.
When kids enter 2nd grade, they should already have a good grasp of the building blocks of math, including basic addition skills, beginning subtraction concepts and the relationship between number values. Moving on to 2nd grade math means learning more difficult concepts in all of these areas, mastering new skills and laying the foundation for math taught in higher grades.
