In the preparation of this work the author has endeavored to make a text-book that shall aid in teaching the art of arithmetic without any unnecessary discussion of the subject as a science. All the subjects have been made as practical as possible; and all obsolete and useless matter and puzzling examples have been omitted. The number of rules has been reduced to a minimum. For example, but one rule is given for multiplication of fractions, one for division of fractions, and two for all cases of reduction of compound numbers, whether integral or fractional. It combines oral and written exercises ; and special pains has been taken to give examples that are practical, and that conform to the usual experiences of daily life. In the Appendix are given seven hundred additional examples for written work, to be drawn from at the discretion of the teacher, for use in connection with the regular work, and for a general review of the subject. Decimals as far only as thousandths (the place of mills in United States currency) are introduced at the beginning with integral numbers. The Decimal, or Metric, system of weights and measures has been treated as a part of decimals, and independently of any other system of weights and measures. Nu |
