Graphs for Beginners


    IN order to teach and illustrate the subject, the author in this small volume makes use of a number of interesting graphs relating mainly to technical and commercial subjects, many of them discontinuous, algebraical curves being given only a secondary place, though the logarithmic or compound interest law is dealt with. The significance of the slope at any point of a graph is enforced by simple and effective examples. The treatment is suggestive and interesting, and the author is justified in hoping that the book will tend to cultivate the observation and stimulate the reasoning powers of the young readers.
