Info for Prospective Contributors:
When I first started this site one of my intentions was that it would be a place where Christian mathematicians and educators could interact and share ideas on integrating their faith and their work. Having recently experienced the benefits of such interaction, I have been reminded once again of my original intention, and I have been inspired to go a different direction to achieve it.
Rather than simply writing my thoughts and waiting for people to respond with comments, I am going to take some time to actively pursue postings from those who are interested. Hopefully this site can eventually become a true forum for the sharing of ideas on distinctly Christian mathematics.
So, if you (or someone you know) have any thoughts on mathematics, math education, Christian education, or the integration of these disciplines, and you agree to the seven essentials in the belief statement, I would absolutely love to hear from you. Feel free to share links to helpful resources, reflections on classroom experience, classroom materials, academic papers, questions that you would like to see others consider, etc.
If you are interested, please send an email to: jwilkersongodandmathcom or simply fill out the contact form below.
Thanks and God bless.
And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.
