Ray’s Arithmetic/Dollar Homeschool (Review)

As part of the Homeschool Crew we received a free copy of Ray's Arithmetic to review. The thought of one program that can carry us from now through graduation is/was a bit intriguing.

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.

The Ray's series includes a total of 38 books. These include the 12 Core Text Books, + Answer Key's, Teachers Editions, and several intriguing books of mathematical pursuits for the aspiring student, such as Surveying, Navigation, Astronomy, Book Keeping, and Physics.

The cost of the CD containing the entire Ray's Arithmetic is only $59.00 and you have a full 30 day money back guarantee. (Shipping is also free for a limited time.) To order click here.

There is no doubt that a student going through this program would get an excellent mathematical education. The only real issue is how much time does the homeschooling parent have to set up problems and make additional practice sheets if necessary? For the family on a strict shoestring budget I'd say this is a wonderful buy that can be used over and over. However, if your time is more limited than your funds, you may find this to be more time consuming than a preprinted program.
