The Third of our Series of Arithmetics, designed for all ordinary classes in our Public and Private Schools, is now presented to the public. The aim has been to make it comprehensive, clear, free from verbiage in its definitions and explanations, inductive in its development of the subject, and well adapted to the schoolroom.
It is believed that the study of Arithmetic, apart from its necessity as a practical branch, may be rendered invaluable as a mental discipline. Every device has been resorted to in this work to make it useful as a means of intellectual training, of teaching the young learner to reflect and reason, at the same time without requiring anything that is not fairly within his reach. Acting on this principle, the author has not laid down rules arbitrarily, but shown the reasons for them by means of preliminary analyses. He has also placed occasional questions or suggestions after examples, in the belief that such hints, starting the learner in the right direction, would encourage him to attempt the solution for himself, rather than apply for aid to his teacher,-a practice as destructive of self-reliance in the one as it is annoying to the other.
To impress principles on the mind, as well as to impart facility in operating, much practice is necessary; and, to secure this, numerous examples are presented, applying the rules in a great variety of ways. The answers in most cases are given, but, to test the learner, a few under almost every rule are omitted. Answers are apt to suggest the processes used; and, if they are invariably given, even the most faithful will unconsciously fall.
