Nature volume 60, page 7 | Download Citation



MESSRS. Sonnenschein and Nesbitt's volume is a modification of one which appeared in 1870, and has for some years occupied a foremost place among school arithmetics. A number of text-books, in which the principles as well as the practice of arithmetic are treated, are now available; but the changes made by Messrs. Sonnenschein and Nesbitt should enable their work to hold its own among them. Several chapters have been remodelled in order to render the demonstrations easier; a new chapter on the properties of fractions has been introduced; least, common multiple is now connected with the Euclid, Book V., and various other additions and alterations have been made to bring the volume up to date in the methods of work described.
