IN these pages we have a collection of algebraical exercises arranged in a progressive order of difficulty and suitable for elementary classes. The compiler has divided the examples in the following way: collection in groups suitable for lessons of about an hour, more advanced questions at end of each group; exercises grouped in series of twenty-six, furnishing two lessons per week for a term; two sets of parallel series either for alternate terms or for more lessons than in one series; oral questions at the beginning of each exercise. The scope of the questions carries the exercises up as far as the progressions. The book should prove useful to teachers who require graduated courses; answers to all the questions are given at the end.
