DRILL EXERCISES.

119. EXPLANATION OF THE USE OF THE DRILL TABLES.

The object of the Drill Tables and Exercises which are found on the six following pages is to extend indefinitely practice in arithmetical operations without additional labor on the part of the teacher.

The exercises are not to be assigned in order, nor is any one pupil expected to perform them all; they may be used, however, like other examples. (See Notes on pages 16, 25, 35, and 48.)

The following illustration shows how they may be used for class drill, and each pupil have a different example.

Addition.

1. Let the members of the class number themselves 1, 2, 3, etc., to any given number up to 25; and let each member find his number in the left-hand margin of the table.

2. The teacher then gives a direction in this form :“Add A, B, and C.” (See Exercise 1, page 59.)

3. In obedience to this direction, each pupil will add the numbers that he finds expressed under the letters A, B, and C, and in the line of his own number. Thus, pupil No. 1 will add 65, 512, and 7901; No. 2 will add 34, 724, and 3053; and so on.

Thus a series of examples is given out at a single dictation, and the pupils are taught to work independently.

4. The key contains answers to all these examples.

Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division By changing slightly the form of direction described above, the same table will afford abundant practice in the other fundamental operations. (See pages 59, 61, and 63.)
