Not illustrated. 1890 edition. Excerpt: ...solution; plane trigonometry, with applications; analytical geometry of two dimensions; spherical trigonometry, with applications; elements of the theory of equations. The preparation desirable for this class is a thorough knowledge of algebra through the binomial theorem, and logarithms; of synthetic geometry, plane and solid, with some training in the solution of geometrical problems; and a knowledge of the elements of plane trigonometry, including the use of logarithmic tables. Text-books.--Snowball's Trigonometry, Puckle's Conic Sections, the Professor's Collection of Exercises in Plane Geometry. Senior Class.--This class meets three times a week (4 hours) and studies analytical geometry of three dimensions, through the discussion of the couicoids and some curves in space; differential and integral calculus, with various applications; a short course in the calculus of variations; the theory of equations, and lectures on the history of mathematics. Text-books.--The Professor's Notes on Solid Geometry (Analytical); Todhunter's Differential Calculus; Williamson's Integral Calculus; Todhunter's Theory of Equations. Candidates for graduation in pure mathematics are required to pursue in the university the studies of both the Intermediate and Senior Classes. II. Mixed Mathematics. This course is designed for those students who may desire to prosecute their studies beyond the limits of pure mathematics. It embraces an extended course of In former years Professor Venable used Courtenay's Integral Calculus, which was supplemented with notes which "nearly equalled the text." (Prof. R. H.
