Ray's Arithmetic
What Arithmetic Teachers
"Rediscovering Ray's is the best
thing that's happened to arithmetic
in a hundred years."

"These books produce
superior math students."

"Their use of story problems
develops thinking right
from the start."

"They are psychologically
right in starting with
concrete and mental arithmetic
before introducing symbols."

"Using Ray's this year
has definitely improved
the achievement test
scores in our schools."

Please Note: Due to the rising costs of producing hardbound books we are switching the Ray's Series over to Paperback. This will allow us to not have to raise our prices.

Changing to paperbacks will also affect our sets which will contain both Hardbound and Paperback versions until all volumes have been changed over to Paperback.
It's Time for the Classics Again!
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.
