Excerpt from The Normal Standard Arithmetic, by Analysis and Induction: Designed for Public and Private Schools, Normal Schools, Academies, Etc
The arrangement of the work is believed to be both scientific and practical, being in accordance with the principles of science and adapted to the natural mental growth and development of the pupil. The motto has been from the easy to the difficult, from the simple to the complex, from the known to the unknown. Care has been taken to present the simpler and more practical subjects first, and not to antici pate any principles or processes before the pupil is prepared for them. The proper gradation of the exercises has been kept continually in view. N 0 problem has been inserted, however interesting in its nature, for which it was not thought the pupil had been previously prepared. In the unfolding of subjects each problem was viewed as a stepping stone to those which followed it, and thus problems which might seem difficult in themselves become easy by virtue of the pupil's previous preparation for them. The proper grading of the path of the science of numbers, with here and there a ﬂower of interest planted along its border, has been a prominent object in the mind of the author.
In the scope and extent of the work judgment has been exercised to present the average requirements of elementary schools. Several sub jeeta heretofore presented in arithmetic have been omitted, while others have been given at the close of the work under the head of a Supple ment. The work is regarded as presenting a complete course for elementary schools without the Supplement; but teachers who desire a fuller course will find several topics in the Supplement which are usually found in text - books of this grade. The work is thus adapted to meet the demands of all grades of elementary schools.
