Excerpt from The New Method Arithmetic
We think it will be conceded that in any branch of education the main idea should be to impress principles, and to so arrange details that the principles are not lost sight of in a confusing mass of detail. Who has not met the boy in school who felt that he was strong on profit and loss, but to whom commission and brokerage was always a difficulty. Is this a fault in the boy or in the system under which he has been instructed P We think that the system must shoulder the blame. There is no difference, in a proper arrangement of the study of arithmetic, between profit and loss and commission and brokerage. When we set up these two applica tions of percentage as separate departments of the work, we are simply transgressing a first principle in properly presenting the subject. The detail of profit and loss and commission and broker age is made to overshadow the principle of percentage, of which such work is a mere application.
