Excerpt from Intermediate Arithmetic
His work has been prepared to meet a demand for a book that contains, within brief compass, an elementary course in arithmetic. It is also designed to be an introduction to the more thorough and exhaustive treatment of the science which is given in the author's standard arithmetic.
The first part of the book contains exercises arranged in such a manner that they secure an easy and natural development of the ideas of numbers, and they afford sufficient practice to fix the results in memory. Ready knowledge of results can be secured only by frequent repetition and thorough drill, and the lessons that have been prepared are believed to be admirably adapted to produce expertness in computing, without sacrificing interest in the subject through constant practice with abstract numbers.
When the more systematic treatment of the science is presented, the pupil is led by natural, progressive, and logical steps to an understanding of the definitions, principles, processes, and rules, before he is required to state them; consequently, all definitions, principles, and rules are but the expressions of what he already knows. It is evident, therefore, that the plan pursued in the work will develop in the student the habit of investigating for himself any subject which may claim his attention, and this is an extremely important part of proper teaching.
