PREFACE.

text-book in arithmetic is entirely useless in the hands of pupils who have not made some progress in learning to read well.

The first presentation of numbers must be oral, and any text-book which presents numbers, beginning with one, so that each number shall be learned not merely as a name or symbol, but as an idea, must necessarily and mainly be a book for the teacher, and should be addressed to the teacher, and give such suggestions as to methods of work as will aid in the presentation of the first lessons in numbers.

Hence, this book has been prepared as the first book in arithmetic for pupils commencing the third school year, and assumes that they have already been orally instructed to read and write numbers of four or more figures, and are able to answer simple mental questions involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

The first fifty pages of this work is meant to be largely a review of previous oral work, and a drill upon simple arithmetical processes, designed to give the pupil a more thorough knowledge of the multiplication and other tables, and to solve readily and correctly easy examples in the fundamental rules, preparatory to taking up a second or complete work on arithmetic.

The plan of this little book is unique, and will, it is believed, supply the kind of first book in arithmetic much needed. Several new features will be apparent at a glance, including Countings, Groupings, Signs, Drill Tables for abstract and concrete work, forms for slate work, etc.
