A Note-book of Experimental Mathematics


    THIS book gives concise instructions for carrying out a number of simple quantitative experiments in mechanics. It is specially suited for students who intend to sit for Army Entrance Examinations, but the excellence of the course outlined renders the book very serviceable for general use in schools; the students get accustomed to fundamental methods of measurement, obtain concrete conceptions of elementary science, and secure much data well adapted to serve as examples and illustrations in a course of practical mathematics. The experiments include measurements of lengths, areas, volumes, weights, specific gravities, fluid pressures, forces, moments, velocities, accelerations, and many other physical quantities. A full and careful list is given of the requisite apparatus and fittings, and the book will be of very great assistance to teachers in the arrangement of a thoroughly sound elementary course of experimental science.
