Longmans' School Algebra

Nature volume 52, page 220 | Download Citation



So far as abundance of examples goes, this book is in advance of other text-books of algebra. There are as many as 5200 examples in the book, 500 of which are collected as miscellaneous examples at the end. Teachers who like to have plenty of material upon which to exercise their pupils' minds, will find that this volume satisfies their requirements. It seems hardly necessary, however, to include in a school algebra such a very large number of examples; in our opinion, the volume would have been improved by omitting many of them, and amplifying the very scanty descriptive text.
