Logarithmic and Other Tables for Schools

    Abstract

    THE introduction of more practical methods in the teaching of mathematics in schools has led to an increasing demand for inexpensive tables of logarithms, values of trigonometric functions, and other data which pupils are now encouraged to use at quite an early stage of their mathematical work. Mr. Castle has compiled a series of four-figure tables which will meet every need of mathematical classes in schools, and be of great service in school laboratories. The tables include logarithms and antilogarithms, natural and logarithmic sines, cosines and tangents, degrees to radians and radians to circular functions, hyperbolic logarithms, powers, roots and reciprocals, and exponential and hyperbolic functions. The type is cleat and the style attractive, and these qualities, combined with the wide scope and low price, should ensure a wide popularity for the tables.
