PREFACE.

VENABLE'S PRACTICAL ARITHMETIC is the more advanced of a two-book series of arithmetics.

The constant aim of the author has been not only to provide the pupil with a work thoroughly graded, so that each step shall be the sufficient training for the step that follows; but, also, to present the work in such variety of form, as at once to maintain his interest and to render his judgment independent. The theoretical and the technical have been subordinated to the practical.

The series is not surpassed in the number of its concrete problems. The oral problems in each subject precede the written, and include work in the applications of percentage and interest. Miscellaneous problems are distributed throughout the book, at the end of the different subjects, and involve all the preceding subjects.

The concrete problems are supplemented by groups of abstract examples under suggestive headings, the numbers in these problems to be replaced by those in the groups of abstract examples, each concrete problem serving as a model for others thus suggested to the teacher. In the multiplicity of problems given and suggested, the author believes that good service has been rendered the teacher, in time saved in the class-room.
