Ray's Math Series
A Complete K-12 math curriculum, from counting to
The Ray's math series begins at a preliterate
level with counting; then takes the child through addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and so
upward until calculus, teaching concepts with thorough explanations followed by ample problem sets. The
Ray's series provides a very full-bodied course of mathematics.
standard math text for over 50 years.
Ray's Arithmetics were endorsed by over 10,000 school boards, and over 100
million copies of the books have been estimated to be sold. When you remember that each of these
books was often re-used by many different children, the number of students educated
with the Ray's series becomes even more impressive!

- “What makes the Ray's Arithmetic a good
math curriculum, and why is it a good choice for my children?”
Arithmetics are unique math books in many ways. The most major difference, and first thing people
often notice when looking at a Ray's math book, is the abundance of word problems. Even many of the simple
problems of addition are given a story setting. There are three interesting effects of this
By solving problems given in a real-life setting, children are
shown how the principles of math they are learning are used in the world. This is incredibly helpful,
especially to young children, who often struggle to bring the abstract ideas of mathematics into
terms they understand.
“Real world, applied mathematics.
By providing plentiful and intriguing word problems, Ray's Arithmetic enables children to bridge the gap
between abstract math and the real world.” -12 year homeschool veteran
Giving math problems in a worded, story format allowed Joseph Ray to
include educational information from other areas like history directly into the mathematical
problems! Consider these problems taken directly from Ray's Practical Arithmetic: 24.“General Washington
was born A.D. 1732, and lived 67 years: in what year did he die?” 25. “Alfred the Great died A.D. 901;
thence to the signing of Magna Charta was 314 years; thence to the American Revolution, 560 years: in what
year did the American Revolution begin?”
The final and perhaps the most intriguing
reason why Ray's methodology works so well is that by becoming accustomed to solving word
problems from an early age, the student learns naturally how to deconstruct a complicated
problem into its more simple parts. By learning this important skill it becomes much
easier for the child to adjust later in life to the complex problems of higher levels
of mathematics and science.
difficult to teach the Ray's Arithmetic?”
The Ray's Arithmetic was originally
created to be used by frontier Americans, people that often lived in areas where available
teachers were few, often far away, or even completely unavailable. For this reason the books are
designed to allow children, once they can read, to educate themselves to a very great extent.
"The books are logically organized... concepts are built one upon
another. This makes it very easy for students to transition to different thought processes as they mature.
I have never seen another math curriculum like this." -Homeschool Mom of four
Every concept is carefully explained, and all of the subjects follow one after another in a
very logical progression, so that the child is never asked to work a type of problem which has not yet been
discussed. The Ray's Arithmetic is uniquely qualified for just such situations as today's Homeschool
