Reviews - What do customers think about Rays Arithmetic Series (8 Volume Set)?
great price - great education Aug 4, 2002
I love this series. It's practical, productive, and, most of all, interesting - it keeps my children's interest. I have natural mathematicians and struggling ones in our homeschooling family, but this suits all of them equally. Math is no longer avoided by the ones that find math challenging. The natural development of the mind is addressed by this unique but "old-fashioned" style. The parent's guide offers clear instructions to assist the learning schedule and process.

Ray's Arithmetics offers the best of all I liked about other popular homeschooling programs (and more) at a fraction of their cost. The lessons are sensible and practical, and they will take us through the eighth grade, from learning to count and read numbers to doing college-level business math. The teacher's guide, which is written by Ruth Beechick, provides an outline and tips on teaching each grade level. Here is her entry for the chapter on Grade 2 : "Teaching Second Grade - A Typical Day - A Typical Week's Schedule - Planning Guide - Progress Record - Testing Second Graders - Test Schecule - Unit Tests - Answer Key for Unit Tests." She offers outlines for fitting lessons into a 36-week year. She also includes a chapter on interesting projects and games that help teach everything from counting to geometry and measures. The books are compact and well-made, so they will fit on my already-crowded bookshelf and they will last through all our children. This eight-book set is perfect for parents who are not impressed with bells and whistles and slick packaging: Ray's Arithmetics look old-fashioned, inside and out. The exercises are practical word problems written using 19th-century prices and situations, which is charming and could be used to enhance a unit study on that era. Ruth Beechick recommends taking care in the eighth-grade year to strengthen any weaknesses that are apparent before going on to algebra, probability, navigation, and so on. I'm excited about learning along with the children. I see many things in these books that I wish I understood, but never was taught, not even in college. When we're finished, the children and I will KNOW math, and I will no longer feel helpless when it comes to our insurance and investments. I highly recommend Ray's Arithmetics.
