New School Arithmetic - Book Two
by Jones, R.L.; C.E. Rogers
Published by Columbian Book Company, Nashville (1924)
Hardcover 434 pages Measures 8x5inches Weighs 1 pound 5 ounces

Condition: Good.
Solid heavy book is well built. Covers are lightly fraying at edges. The price text on back cover has been scratched out. Pages are clean. Appears to have been a teachers edition? Seems cared for. Will display nicely.

While the authors have assumed that students entering the sixth grade have
acquired reasonable facility in ordinary computations, they have included in
this volume a more extended treatment of each of the four fundamental opera­
tions with ample provision for application and drill. Since success in all arith­
metical work is directly dependent upon efficiency in these fundamentals, the
authors feel that the space and time given to these fundamentals are justified.
Practically all the other topics included in this volume are those that have
found secure places in text-books of similar grade in general use. In addition, how­
ever, special attention is given to a few features which seem to demand place
in a modern text-book on arithmetic.
First, a somewhat extended study of graphs is deemed necessary because
of the use being made of them in general publications. Not only technical jour­
nals but magazines of all classes, as well as newspapers, are employing graphs
for purposes of comparison in one of the several forms presented in this volume.
The mathematics of the graphs here treated is sufficiently elementary to be
mastered easily by the pupils in the upper grammar grades.
Second, the equation has long been recognized as the most powerful instru­
ment for problem solving, and yet in the field of elementary arithmetic its
value has not only been ignored, but unnatural and forced processes have been
employed in order to avoid the natural method based upon the equation. The
authors have allowed the formula and equation to perform their logical func­
tions as they have evolved in the regular work in mensuration and in prob­
lems requiring the indirect process.
I Third, a few new applications of percentage seem to demand attention in a
modern text-book on arithmetic. The interest developed in stocks and bonds
through thrift and war stamps, liberty bonds, etc., vitalizes an old and unin­
teresting topic almost to the extent of making it new. While most of the
mathematics of the Federal Farm Loan Associations is embodied in prepared
tables, the manipulation of these tables and the informational side of the sub-
bet are important and are given proper space. Phases of farming, commerce,
pad industry not always included in a text-book are treated not only for the
arithmetic involved but also for the general informational value to the student
Fourth, the authors have attempted a combination of the types of text-books
represented on the one hand by the extreme spiral organization, and on the other
by the rigid topical organization. To avoid the too frequent changes of topics
resulting often in mere confusion, and to eliminate the long grind of holding the.....
