All books are softcover in this set. Mott Media has republished the version of Ray's Arithmetic from the late 1870's and early 1880's! Ray's Arithmetics teach arithmetic in an orderly fashion, starting from rules and principles, building knowledge piece by piece, leading pupils from simple to complex. From the very first pages, Ray's Arithmetics incorporate what has become the scourge of today's math students - story problems. Students must READ simple sentences which pose real life problems, decide whether to add, subtract, multiply or divide, and finally arrive at the answer - sometimes mentally - sometimes in writing. Ray's Arithmetics students learn arithmetic, increase their reading comprehension skills, and learn to think rather than plod through page after page of addition or subtraction problems with a one-line direction at the top of each page. A student raised on Ray's will not even know he should be fearful of "story problems" because from day one every problem is posed in a sentence format. Most early work is to be done with real objects such as fruit, counting blocks, or marbles. Later it is to be done in the head with mental images of the objects. When children are ready to think symbolically, they gradually drop their use of objects and images and learn to compute quickly with digits. Thus the child is carefully led through three growth states in arithmetic: 1) the manipulative stage, 2) the mental image stage, 3) the abstract stage. Over 120 million copies were sold in American education's golden age. Many millions of children used these Arithmetics in the generations that produced Edison, Bell, and Ford. Now it's your turn.

Book Description Mott Media (MI), United States, 2001. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is the classic Arithmetics by Joseph Ray. First published in the 1800s, Ray s Arithmetics are organized in an orderly manner around the discipline of arithmetic itself. They present principles and follow up each one with examples which include difficult problems to challenge the best students. Students who do not master a concept the first time can return to it later, work the more difficult problems, and master the concepts. Thus in these compact volumes is a complete arithmetic course to study in school, to help in preparation for ACT and SAT tests, and to use for reference throughout a lifetime. In order to capture the spirit of the original Ray s, the publishers of this edition have refrained from revising the problems and prices. Only a few words have been changed. Thus students will have to rely on their arithmetic ability to solve the problems. Also the charm of a former era lives on in this reprinting. Flour and salt are sold by the barrel, kegs may contain tar, and postage stamps cost three cents each. Through this content, students learn social history of the 1800s in a unique, hands-on manner at the same time they are mastering arithmetic. Primary Arithmetic: Reading, writing and understanding numbers to 100; adding and subtracting with sums to 20; multiplication and division to 10s. Intellectual Arithmetic: Higher whole numbers, fractions, and mixed numbers; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of higher numbers; computation of simple fractions; beginning ratio and percentage. Practical Arithmetic: Roman numerals; carrying in addition and borrowing in subtraction; measurement and compound numbers; factors; decimals and percentage; ratio and proportion; powers and roots; beginning geometry; advanced vocabulary. Higher Arithmetic: Philosophical understandings; principles and properties of numbers; advanced study of common and decimal fractions, measurements, ratio, proportion, percentage, powers, and roots; series; business math; geometry. Also included: Test Examples: A supply of problems for making tests to accompany study in Practical Arithmetic and Higher Arithmetic. Keys to Ray s Primary, Intellectual and Practical Arithmetics: Answers to problems in the three lower books. Key to Ray s Higher Arithmetic: Answers to problems in the higher book. Parent-Teacher Guide: This gives unit by unit helps for teaching; suggests grade levels for each book; provides progress chart samples for each grade and tests for each unit.
