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.
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.
Laying a strong and positive foundation in your homeschool math first grade curriculum is essential. Regrouping or recouping interest and confidence in math later, once it's been lost, is challenging to downright impossible. It's so much wiser and better to establish a warm, friendly relationship from the start. This shouldn't be fuzzy or unfocused however. There is much to be found in the heart and at the roots of math that can naturally arouse interest and even affection!
