Excerpt from Arithmetic by Grades, Vol. 3: For Inductive Teaching, Drilling and Testing
The first section of this book is given to a review of Book No. 2. If these exercises are found too difficult for pupils, it would be well to review such parts of Book No. 2 as are most needed to give a good foundation for subsequent work.
In developing ideas of numbers to thousands and millions, and of the combinations and relations of those numbers, objects are necessary. The most convenient objects for this purpose are the ordinary splints or wooden tooth-picks. These can be put into bundles of the required size With rubber bands. It is advised that a large number of these splints be supplied to pupils for individual use in the preparation and recitation of lessons.
Drawings also in illustration or explanation of required processes are advised. This exercise will be found especially profitable as well as agreeable for busy work.
For other suggestions and directions in using this book, and for answers to problems, teachers are referred to the Manual for teachers. Which is designed to accompany all books of the series.
