Excerpt from Lippincott's Practical Arithmetic: Embracing the Science and Practical Applications of Numbers

That Arithmetic is both a science and an art is not only generally conceded, but emphatically affirmed. One, there fore, investigating the methods of instruction adopted in school-rooms would logically expect to find both aspects of the subject distinctly put in evidence. What is universally acknowledged and proclaimed as essential and vital to any true system of arithmetical education the investigator, how ever, would fail to find distinctly characterizing either the instructions given by the average teacher or the work required of the average pupil. What we mean is, that if he saw any thing notable, he would see Art conspicuous in the foreground, while Science, if visible at all, sat mute far back. There might be seen, to be sure, remarkable skill displayed in many instances, and results brought forth with surprising facility; but, in it all, Science, that alone imparts life to action and informs the mind, would have little or no part.
