Perfect for home or classroom use Practical Arithmetic is an effective mathematics textbook by Professor Joseph Ray. It includes all the essential fundamental mathematics, from addition to factors and compound interest. Ray's textbooks were primarily designed for use by teachers instructing courses in mathematics. While the books would also be appropriate for the independent learner, the focus is mainly on providing an instructor with a series of lessons to assign to students. Practical Arithmetic opens with a chapter on simple numbers, and contains lessons about tation and numeration, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The second chapter examines compound numbers, and provides a series of real world case studies including the money of the United States, measuring beer, the measurement of time, and many more.

As with all of the titles authored by Joseph Ray, Practical Arithmetic is an effective instructor's guide. The information is presented in a logical fashion, and Ray clearly has a talent for explaining mathematical theories. Practical Arithmetic is a classic guidebook for teaching mathematics the book can serve as a good home study guide as well as a source of inspiration for classroom teachers.
