### What ancient roman students used?

The ancient Roman students used the same materials that our present day students use, although in a primitive form. Their books were scrolls, which they had to unroll in order to read and then roll up once they were finished. They wrote on wax tablets with a stylus for practice or for quick notes. These tablets could be rubbed out and reused. For "good writing" or formal letters they used papyrus and an ink pen. They had a lot more memorizing to do than our students today and for math problems they used an abacus or "counting board".
