"Advance In methods of Instruction makes now - improved text-books a nocesehty,"

SCHOOL BOARDS and TEACHERS are respectfully invited to examine the improved edition, just published, of



An entirely new work, containing many important improvements, calca. lated to inåugurate a much-needed reform, both in the teaching of the science and of the art of numbers.

It was the first book of the kind to give a full and reliable presentation of the Metric System of Weights and Measures, as legalized by Congress.

Also, the first to make written arithmetic intellectual in all its processes, and practical in all its applications ;

And justly claims pre-eminence for enforcing educational results by orderly arrangement of topics, and by systematic review questions and exercises.


Is complete in itself, and sufficient for Common Schools and Seminaries

It is the long desired practical course, time saving and labor saving.

It avoids the usual multiplicity of rules, in Multiplication, Division, Reduction, etc., which have been found unnecessarily to tax the memory, or confuse the mind.

It contains no useless lumber of obsolete weights and measures, "pounds, shillings, and pence," cross multiplication," etc., to discourage and retard progress.

The extraordinary success of the first editions of this new work is abundant evidence of its meeting present educational wants, and of its being




PROVIDENCE, Oct. 2, 1866. I have examined the New PRACTICAL ARITHMETIC. Its state. ment of principles appears clear and concise, and sufficiently well illustrated by appropriate examples. While avoiding redundancy, it is comprehensive in its scope, and practically complete in detail. I consider it well worthy of the attention of those who are selecting a new text-book in this department.

PROVIDENCE, Oct. 11, 1866. I must pronounce GREENLEAF's New PRACTICAL ARITHMETIC a very superior practical book. The arrangement of topics is natural and logical, the definitions are clear and concise, and the examples are exceedingly practical. The mental, analytical, and general review exercises are features of universal interest and importance, while the introduction and practical use of the Metric System of Weights and Measures, and the treatment of Internal Revenue, make the work more complete than any yet published. The methods of treating Percentage, Annual Interest, Balancing Accounts, Domestic and Foreign Exchange, and the diagrams which illustrate different portions of the book, are worthy of special commendation.

T. W. BICKNELL, Principal, and President of R. I. Institute.

High School, LONSDALE, R. I., Sept. 7, 1866. I have always considered GREENLEAF's ARITHMETICS excellent. It has long been a common remark among teachers, that GREENLeaf's COMMON SCHOOL ARITHMETIC is the best for classes requiring a book of that grade. But I think GREENLEAF's New PRACTICAL is superior to that work. GREENLEAF's New ELEMENTARY ARITHMETIC supplies a desideratum long feit. We have used it in our intermediate course. I can confidently reconimend GREENLEAF'S ENTIRE SERIES.

J. M. ROSS. Principal. 29
