Arithmancy

LESSON 1

Welcome to your first Arithmancy lesson!

"For your first lesson I just want to explain what about Arithmancy.
 
With Arithmancy you can take a name of someone who you don't know well and be able to know what kind of person they are.
 
Arithmancy has been around for over 2000s years and the basic form of it hasn't changed.  The Ancient Greeks began this ancient study or fortune telling when they worshiped their gods. 
 
The letters and numbers in Arithmancy had been translated to English and other European languages about 1000 years ago.  This form of divination quickly spread making it popular and easier to learn.
 
However, some people are septical of Arithmancy as well as other branchs of Divination.  I assume that some of you in this class are at least somewhat secptical of this so I am going to try to disprove it.
 
For homework, I want you to write about one person you know and please include their first and last name(If you are unconfortable sharing the name of someone you know pick a main character in the Harry Potter books.  Make the character has a big enough role in the book so you know their personality, likes and dislikes.  For example, use Remus Lupin instead of Lavender Brown)  I want you to include 3 things they like, 2 they dislike, 3 positive personality traits and 3 negative ones.
