Norton's Elements of Chemistry.
301 pages.Norton's Science's are truly excellent; a student who applied himself to any of these books will come away with a deep understanding of the subject. Norton's Chemistry introduces the student to the classical experiments and studies of chemistry, and a basic knowledge of the elements.


Norton's Elements of Natural Philosophy. 468 pages. This work is the result many years experience in teaching the subject of Physics, and is a thorough introduction to the forces involved in the subject.


Norton's Elements of Physics. 269 pages. This intriguing book is so well written that it does not feel so much like a dry text on the mathematics of physics as an exploration of physical laws, thus allowing someone well acquainted with physics or not at all to read this book with great enjoyment. Carefully illustrated, this book begins by introducing the student first to general notions of matter and force, and then introducing new elements one by one. Friction, adhesion, fluids, sound, light, heat, and electricity are all explored, with careful explanations of experiments and studies done by the scientists who explored these properties.


Ray's Elements of Astronomy. 342 pages. Taking a different approach to astronomy, rather than focusing on the Greek names for constellations this book focuses on the movements of heavenly bodies and the science of astronomy.


Ray's Surveying and Navigation. 492 pages. While this book thoroughly covers the old art of Surveying (the same business George Washington was in for a number of years) this book is especially useful because of it's great attention to the field of Plane and Spherical Trigonometry and Mensuration, and may because of this be used as a textbook for those fields.


Complete Book Keeping. 161 pages. An often over-looked area of study, book-keeping will always be an important area of expertise for anyone who earns or spends money. As the author states: “Book-keeping... cultivates the judicial powers of the mind... contributes to private and public virtue.. leads to economy and thrift... and it's practice will reduce pauperism and crime.” Beginning with the basic form of double entry book-keeping, Debit, Credit, and all areas of accounting are taught.


Schuyler's Principles of Logic. 169 pages. Logic is a mathematical pursuit. How can we tell? Through logic.... Because math is based on logical premises (induction), and then followed through in a logical working out of the premises (deduction). The author explains this more thoroughly, but you'll have to read the book.


Introduction to Botany. 372 pages. This is a short course on the study of the knowledge of forest, field, wayside, farm, orchard, garden. The most basic knowledge of plants is slowly being lost by those living in cities and lifestyles which exclude plants from our lives, but it is an interesting and even necessary area of expertise.


Nature Study: This book is a guide on how to observe and note experiments and studies in nature.

First Year Science. 505 pages. Meant for High School Students, this book is an introduction to many different forms of science; Physics, Chemistry, Meteorology, Botany, Zoology, Physiology, Astronomy, Physiography, Forestry, and Agriculture are all treated. The language is kept simple, not technical, and the principles are thoroughly illustrated with experiments and pictures.


Political Economy. 396 pages. This book is an excellent introduction to economics. A knowledge of basic economics is a necessary thing for any person wishing to hold any job, especially one requiring management of a business or other people.


Simplified Industrial Mechanics. 289 pages. This is a technical book, providing problems and an answer key. It is a good beginning college course on the subject.


Guide to Health: A course on the body; how it works and how to maintain it.

"Thank you again for my order.... This is a treasure and I'm glad you are keeping it alive and sharing it."

“By the time a student finishes the Practical Arithmetic book, he/she would be ready to get a job and understand basic financial concepts (not that I expect my 12 year old to go to work, but they could help with the family business and family finances with ease)”
~ Mandi Aumann


Thanks for your help and support.  My children love to do Ray's Arithmetic.  I believe it makes math fun!  Of course, I love math so I am biased.



“Because of your work on the Ray’s CDs, we were able to make our decision to use Ray’s as our math curriculum. Thank you for your time that you have already put into these wonderful, rich programs. We also are using the Robinson Curriculum and are enjoying that as well. “
In Christ,
~Josh and Heather

“Excellent product! Your customer service is also Excellent! Thank You. “

"As a former math teacher at a classical and Christian school, where we used another popular modern math curriculum, we have chosen to use Ray's for the homeschooling of our four children.  Our use during the last four years has proven that Ray's Arithmetic does what a good math program should do; build mastery of mathematical skills and help students to think mathematically (not just memorizing rules or recipes for solving problems).  It does this through focused incremental practice of skills and a variety of practical word problems.  I give it my highest recommendation."

Robert (& Elisabeth) Terry

I bought Sherry Hayes ebook recently and just loved all the practical advice on how to use these materials.  It has given me the confidence to use the entire curriculum.  What a wonderful resource!


"We love the Ray's Arithmetic series  because it provides such a great value!  With heavy use of word problems and "real world" math, and progressing logically from concrete to abstract, this series coversK-8th grades for less than what most programs cost for a single grade."
~Rachel Ramey, homeschooling mother of 3, and more to come!  
"Over the last 23 years of actual homeschooling experience I have tried just about every curriculum and method available, from textbooks to unit studies to Charlotte Mason to the unschooling methodology…. Today, not only the McGuffey Readers Series, but just about every primary subject in our homeschooling is based on or benefited by these dear old volumes and the time-honored practices they promote."
 ~ Sherry Hayes, homeschool mother of 15 children.
