SECTION VIII. — Addition Circles. [EXPLANATION.- Addition circles are formed by adding a number continually to itself, dropping the hundreds, till we return to the number with which we commenced. Take, for instance, 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, 90, 99, 108, then omit the hundreds, 17, 26, &c. Each circle should be recited again and again, till it can be repeated as fast as the words can be spoken. The circles for 7 and 3 may be formed in the same manner as for 9. The even numbers and 5 must be managed somewhat differently, to insure sufficient variety. As the repetition of 5 will only give fives and ciphers in the unit's place, after repeating the circle sufficiently with that number, commence the circle again with the other digits. Thus, commencing with 1 gives 6, 11, 16, &c., with 2 gives 7, 12, 17, &c., and so with the other digits. In forming circles with the even numbers, in order that there may be sufficient variety, it will be necessary to commence at least twice, namely, once with an odd figure, and once with an even one. The exercises that follow increase in difficulty, nearly in the order in which they are arranged. They will be formed with more ease, if the pupil observes that the addition of 9, 19, 29, &c., to any number diminishes the number of units by 1; the addition of 8, 18, &c., by 2, and 7, &c., by 3. It may also be noticed that the addition of 1, 11, 21, &c., 2, 12, 22, &c., 3, 13, 23, &c., increase the units by 1, 2, and 3, respectively.] 1. Form an addition circle with 9; with 7; with 3; dropping the hundreds; and continuing the process till the pupil again arrives at the number 9, or 7, or 3, with which he commenced. 2. Form a circle with 5, commencing with that number. Form it again, commencing with 6; with 7; with 8; with 9. 3. Form addition circles with 2, 4, 6, 8; commencing, the first time, with these numbers severally; afterwards, with an additional 1, 3, 5, or 7. 4. Form addition circles with 11, 12, 13, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, in a similar manner as with the single digits. 5. Form circles with the numbers 21 to 29, varying the commencement by the addition of other numbers as above, especially the even numbers and 25. [These exercises ought to be repeated till the circles can be recited rapidly and without hesitation.] SECTION IX. — Increase and Decrease by Large Numbers, the Tens causing a change in the Hundreds. 1. SEVENTY and seventy, how many ? [A hundred and forty. Why? Because seventy and seventy make fourteenty, and as ten ty make a hundred, fourteen ty are a hundred and forty. Repeat this idea in the following questions, till the principle is sufficiently familiar to the class, when the questions may be answered in the usual terms.] Ninety and forty? [Ans. A hundred and thirty. Why, &c. ? Some pupils will add numbers like these more rapidly by subtracting a sufficient number of ty from the smaller number to increase the larger number to 100. Thus, 80+70=170—20=150; 90+40=140-10= 130; 84+42=146420=126; 365+253=668—40=618. Observe, however, that one of the two steps in each of the above operations should be dropped as superfluous after a little practice.] Sixty and fifty ? Eighty and ninety? Forty-two and eighty-four ? Thirty-six and eighty-two ? Fifty-four and sixty-two ? Seventy-eight and eighty-one? A hundred and fifty and seventy ? [Explain again, if any hesitation here.] Two hundred and eighty and a hundred and sixty ? Three hundred and sixty-five and two hundred and fifty-three ? 2. Seventy from a hundred and forty ? [A hundred and forty being the same as fourteen ty, this question is, in fact, seventy from fourteenty, which is seventy.] Ninety from a hundred and thirty ? Forty-two from a hundred and twentysix ? Fifty-four from a hundred and sixteen? Seventy-eight from a hundred and fifty-nine? A hundred and sixty from four hundred and forty? Three hundred and sixty-four from six hundred and eighteen ? 3. Sixty and eighty, how many ? Seventy-three and fortyfive? Seventy-two and seventy-six ? Thirty-six and ninetythree ? Five hundred and forty-six and two hundred and ninety-one? Five hundred and forty-six and two hundred and ninety-two? [Seven hundred and thirteenty-eight, or, &c.] Three hundred and eighty-eight and two hundred and fortyone?
