Ray’s for Today offers the rigorous and uncompromising content of the original Ray’s New Arithmetic series in an updated format. It recreates the classical teaching in an age-appropriate and contemporary manner while still keeping the emphasis on oral language, mental math, and math reasoning.
The lessons are designed along the stages of learning: exposure, practice, and mastery. The goal is to build a deep, yet practical understanding of math. Eight levels are planned for grades 1 through 8.
Each level includes a Student Text and the Instructor’s Manual (sold separately or as a set). Please note: the Instructor's Manual is necessary to teach the course. The Set includes both books and is discounted.
Each book comes shrink-wrapped and three-hole punched. Customers have the option of using their own binders or they can purchase binders from us (sold separately, order HBC# 130631, 1-inch binder for the Instructor's Manual and HBC# 130632, the 2-inch binder for the Student Book). The product cover can be slipped into the cover of the binder. This keeps costs down to make this one of the most affordable, full-fledged curriculums on the market. It also gives the parent/teacher several options for pulling out individual sheets for the daily lesson or giving the student his/her own notebook.
The essential learning objectives for Level 1 are: (1) learn how to read, write, count, and conceptually understand the numbers through 100; and (2) learn how to add and subtract numbers with sums up to 20 (the addition and subtraction fact families for the numbers 1 through 10). Students are also introduced to telling time, the calendar, geometric shapes, coins, skip-counting, measuring in customary units, simple fractions, and graphs.
