OXFORD.—Considerable changes will be introduced into the examination for Mathematical Honours, Moderations, by a scheme which comes into effect in 1904. The main features of this scheme are (1) the legalising of the use of the infinitesimal calculus in answering questions on mechanics; (2) the abolition of restrictions on the freedom of choice of method, analytical or synthetic, in the treatment of geometry; (3) the introduction of the elements of analytical solid geometry.
