This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: no objection to the introduction of such fractions as J, illustrated by the farthing, halfpenny, and by the parts of an inch on the ruler, the use of other vulgar fractions and decimals is rather absurd at this early stage; and one very much questions the advisability of bothering children of six, seven and eight with x values.

Exercises dealing with weighing have been included throughout the series. The arithmetics are issued in two sets--pupils' copies at 3d. and teachers' at 8d. The latter contain the problems given in the scholars' edition, together with the answers and many useful hints. Rational Test Cards in Arithmetic. Sets III.-VII. (Macmillan and Co. is. nett.)
