THE development of modern geometry from its fundamental Euclidean basis marked the beginning of a new epoch in the teaching of school mathematics, for it led slowly to the removal of those artificial divisions which formerly encompassed arithmetic, algebra and geometry. Such a natural process, how ever, was no destined to stop at these subjects, and, in these days of advanced courses and scholarship classes, it is gradually, though surely, permeating analysis, which has too long regarded algebra, trigonometry and the calculus as distinct parts.
