arrangement of the product with the first class of multipliers is more nearly like that with multipliers of one place. Facility in the mechanical work of multiplication requires not only a ready knowledge of the several products, but also the ability to find readily the sum of the product and some given number, — the number to be carried.” , “ This is provided for in the drill exercises that follow each set of facts in multiplication. This furnishes a constant review of the addition combinations as well as the desired practice in adding a number to each product. DIVISION Each lesson in multiplication is followed by a corresponding lesson in division. The study exercises in both should be thoroughly mastered before attempting the exercises which follow. With one place divisors, short division is used. The pupils should acquire the habit of using the shorter method with divisors of one place. The several steps in long division are taught when occasion arises for their use. A special method is employed in the subject of long division. Much time is usually wasted by the pupil in the attempt to find the correct quotient figure, with the result that pupils become discouraged and acquire a dislike for the work. A method is here presented by which the correct quotient figure may be found with little difficulty. (See pp. 178–186.) The teacher should acquaint herself with the method and should see that the pupils are perfectly familiar with it before they are required to use it. Time spent in mastering it will be time saved. A study of divisors with reference to determining the quotient figure is given in the text. The pupils should be taught to inspect closely each new divisor before attempting to use it. Use only such divisors as properly belong in each of the classes into which they are grouped in the text. A divisor of one place is used in presenting the several steps in long division. This is accompanied by a second illustration in which the divisor consists of two places. The authors are quite certain that many teachers will secure better results by teaching the steps in long division in connection with divisors of two places. Until the process has been thoroughly learned, use as divisors numbers in which the second figure is the same as or less than the first figure ; as, 44, 55, 84, 32, 43, 75, 97, etc. CHAPTER III ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION NOTATION, NUMERATION, OBJECTIVE FRACTIONS, COMPOUND NUMBERS, MULTIPLICATION, AND DIVISION ones. 7. 1. 1.
