A New Algebra for Schools

    Abstract

    THIS book has been written for the ordinary pupil, and an excellent course has been devised whereby the initial difficulties in algebra, duo largely to the symbolic notation, may be overcome. In the early stages, the student is trained to think in numbers when using letters. Simple practical formulae are then developed in such a way as to exhibit the utility of the notation. The volume, embracing parts 1 and 2, each corresponding to a normal year's work, carries the subject up to quadratic equations, and a characteristic feature lies in the numerous illustrations drawn from geometry, physics, and mechanics. At the present time, when progressive teachers are strongly advocating a greater degree of unification in school mathematical subjects, such a book as this is very welcome. There is an abundance of exercises to meet the needs of both ordinary pupils and those of special ability.
