Early 19th century arithmetic books taught addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division often using problems drawn from every day life. Many times these arithmetic books taught morality as well. On page 20 of this book (to see click on the Select a page menu above) the author teaches a lesson in Temperance (or abstinence from drinking alcohol) in a subtraction problem. Many schoolbook authors were ministers or other people involved in the social reform movements of the day such as Temperance and Abolition.
