(1) MR. FAWDRY'S little book is essentially a collection of laboratory notes dealing with experiments on elementary mensuration, loci in two-dimensions, some field work on “heights and distances,” experiments on the principle of Archimedes and specific gravities, the construction of graphs to represent experimental results, the derivation of equations to represent such graphs, and some experiments on the calculus. It is not a text-book, but a laboratory manual. It is interesting to note that nearly all the experiments on the calculus are taken from army examination papers-a testimonial to these excellently conducted examinations.
