Summary:Age Range: 6-14 (Grades 1-8, with parental supervision). This very plain website houses a most unusual math resource. It has a downloadable arithmetic book from 1878! Even if you have a fabulous math program already, it is fun to look at and see what kids learned from over 140 years ago.
Description:When you get to the site you will see a brief introduction explaining that the book, "First Lessons In Arithmetic," was published in 1878 and handed down from one generation to the next by the Potter family. Don Potter decided to put the antiquated volume on the net because, "This math book will provide home school parents... a incomparable tool from the past to help their students master the fundamentals of arithmetic."

Chapters on the menu include:
  • Counting & Addition
  • Addition & Subtraction
  • Multiplication
  • Division
  • Fractions
  • Notation and Numeration
  • Advanced Addition & Subtraction
  • Long Multiplication
  • Long Division
  • Money, etc.
Click on any chapter, and a .pdf file opens with problems and instructions, accompanied by illustrations sure to create nostalgia for a bygone era. In addition to the free textbook, Mr. Potter offers a few other links to math resources on this site as well.
