The above is a photo of an uncle’s 5th grade math notebook, recently discovered by the family. It dates back to 1934 when he was 11 years old. He and his brother were taught by a certain Mirza Einollah in their village. They came to the big city for their “higher education,” and were accepted in 5th grade. He finished at the top of his class, and later used his sixth grade diploma to become the accountant for a major hotel in Tehran.
