LITTLE FOLKs' ARITHMETIC,
Recent changes in the amount and character of Arithmetical teaching have led to the preparation of this volume, which is not a revision of THE MODEL ARITHMETIC published in 1875, but is, as its name indicates, essentially a new book.
An effort has been made to retain the features of the former work which commended themselves to thoughtful educators; to abandon that which is now considered irrelevant, and to treat in the best possible method every subject presented.
In this book, as in its predecessor, will be found the combination of oral and written exercises in which the first Model Arithmetic was the pioneer-and a large number of well graded examples.
In addition to the examples and problems, to which answers are given at the close of the volume, will be found a large number of tabulated exercises, answers to which will be furnished to teachers by the publishers without cost. The advantage of such examples in assisting in the development of independent thought is apparent.
The repetitions rendered necessary by the Summaries will not be criticised by the experienced teacher.
The greatest departure from the usual methods is found in the presentation of Decimal Fractions as an integral part of the decimal system ; which, it is confidently believed, will be appreciated by those who use the book.
