New Series of Arithmetics.
COMPRISING . THE CHILD'S ARITHMETIC----
----15 cents. COLBURN'S INTELLECTUAL ARITHMETIC._-256 56 COMMON SCHOOL
---56 “ 6 ARITHMETIC AND ITS APPLICATIONS-84 “ These books differ from many others in several important particulars.
1. The investigations of the principles on which the rules of urithme. tic depend, always precede and are made more prominent than the statement of those rules.
2. The logical relations of the several parts of arithmetic are clearly marked by their arrangement. For example, reduction is not treated as a separate rule, but so much as belongs to multiplication is placed under that head, while the rest takes its proper place as one of the practical ap. plications of division. Interst, discount, and the kindred rules, are grouped together as illustrati ns of the doctrine proportion. The theory of decimals is placed much earlier in the course than usual. The rules for compound numbers are explained in connection with the corresponding rules for simple numbers, the principle u on which these rules depend being identical.
3. A large number of examples are given for the illustration of each rule, and great care has been taken to select those of a practical or busi. ness character.
4. The answers to the examples are not given in the arithmetics. Keys to the higher books are furnished gratis to teachers using the arithmetics, but are not sold to booksellers.
6. They are original books, the result of much careful thought, study, and experience as a teacher:
Colburn's Arithmetics are regarded by all teachers who are acquainted with their merits as at least among the best treatises in this department. They are everywhere liked best by the best teachers, and wherever introduced, the longer they are used, the better they are liked.
Although so recently published, (the series was not completed until 1860, with very little effort on the part of the publishers to bring them into use, they have already worked their own way into the public schcols of such places as St. Louis, Mo.; San Francisco, Cal.; Syracuse, N. Y.; New Haven, Hartford and Norwich, Conn., Salem, Fitchburg, Somer. ville, etc., Mass.; and in many of the smaller cities and towns in the vicinity of these places,
