8th grade exam from 1912

An 8th grade exam from Bullitt County, Kentucky. I’m not sure about the other subject areas, but it seems to me that the standards for arithmetic for those 8th grades are approximately in line with what we expect of pre-algebra students today.

Of course, the students of 1912 didn’t have access to scientific calculators.
