Abstract

IF mathematics is to be regarded as the science of classification, a view apparently taken in many recent works, it may be worth while to consider whether mathematical teaching should not begin with the use of models of classifications in general rather than with the special classifications in connection with which terms like straight line, rotation, product, power, &c., were originally introduced.
