AN creation TO arithmetic With purposes to technology and Agriculture by way of ISATAII LESLIE MILLER Professor of arithmetic, South Dakota nation collage of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts F. S. CROFTS CO. big apple ----MCMXXX COPYRIGHT, 1930, by means of F. S. CROITS Co., INC. synthetic within the u . s . through BRAUNWORTH CO., INC., BROOKLYN, ny PREFACE AFTER a few fourteen years of educating in American faculties and universities the writer unearths that the common highschool graduate has no longer built in himself a mathematical form of reasoning. lie as a result hopes that this therapy may possibly in a few degree accomplish this objective. the 1st few chapters are dedicated to a radical evaluation of highschool algebra, for the writer is confident that almost all collage learners want massive drill at the basic tactics of algebra earlier than trying a really large research of arithmetic. In getting ready this publication the writer has saved in brain sorts of scholars first, those that won't ever take extra paintings in arithmetic, and moment, those that will proceed the paintings in technology or agriculture for complicated levels and should no doubt wish to pursue extra classes in arithmetic. He has for that reason tried to write down a ebook simple within the primary ideas of arithmetic and whilst has endeavored to make functional purposes to the fields of technological know-how and agri tradition, anyplace attainable. He feels thorough wisdom of the cloth lined during this paintings will allow the second one kind of pupil to effectively pursue a path in analytical geometry by way of a path within the calculus. the writer gratefully recognizes his indebtedness to his colleagues, Professor Win. Asker for getting ready the bankruptcy on information, and Mr. H. B. MacDougal for checking a lot of the cloth, to Professor I. W. Smith of the North Dakota Agri cultural university for utilizing the fabric in mimeographed shape and delivering many precious feedback, to Dean D. A. Roth VI PREFACE rock of Indiana college for analyzing many of the manuscript and to Professor Wm. Marshall of Purdue collage for encouraging him within the paintings. the writer additionally wants to thank Professor E. S. Crawley of the college of Pennsylvania for his beneficiant permission to take advantage of the higher a part of his Tables of Logarithms as a component to this publication. I. L.
