Each Monday during the semester I start class with a short devotional on a verse that relates in some way to mathematics. After three weeks I choose one of the three at random for students to write out on their quiz for a possible bonus point. This encourages students to practice memorizing Scripture and it gives us the opportunity to discuss biblical principles that relate to some of the topics we are studying in the course.
I would like to share some of the Bible verses and weekly devotionals I have used in my mathematics classes. These can be organized into four main categories: verses about our infinite god, verses about finances, verses about dimensions, and verses about the mind. Hopefully these verses will stimulate your thinking about how you might incorporate Scripture into your mathematics courses as well.
