#18: Geometry: The Liberal Art of Continuous Quantity

Is now available in Itunes & Stitcher. We would love to know what you think, so leave us a review and rating on ITunes!

Welcome to The Classical Homeschool Podcast. At the Classical Homeschool Podcast, our heart is to take on the work of wrestling through the, sometimes difficult and philosophical, ideas presented throughout the classical education movement and bring them down to earth, specifically and practically for the classical homeschooling mom.

The liberal art of geometry is more than angles, shapes, and high school classrooms. In this episode, we are discussing the importance of deductive thinking and how they prepare the student for the more abstract studies of the liberal arts of harmony and astronomy.

“Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23 ESV
