WEFOUNDHow to Teach Arithmetic: A Manual for Teachers and a Textbook for Normal Schools


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.

    Sequences of numbers that follow a pattern of adding a fixed number from one term to the next are called arithmetic sequences. The following sequences are arithmetic sequences:
