AN advent TO arithmetic With functions to technological know-how and Agriculture through ISATAII LESLIE MILLER Professor of arithmetic, South Dakota nation collage of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts F. S. CROFTS CO. manhattan ----MCMXXX COPYRIGHT, 1930, by means of F. S. CROITS Co., INC. synthetic within the united states by means of BRAUNWORTH CO., INC., BROOKLYN, long island PREFACE AFTER a few fourteen years of training in American schools and universities the writer reveals that the typical highschool graduate has no longer built in himself a mathematical form of reasoning. lie consequently hopes that this remedy may possibly in a few degree accomplish this objective. the 1st few chapters are dedicated to a radical evaluate of highschool algebra, for the writer is confident that almost all university inexperienced persons want enormous drill at the basic tactics of algebra earlier than making an attempt a truly vast research of arithmetic. In getting ready this publication the writer has saved in brain kinds of scholars first, those that won't ever take extra paintings in arithmetic, and moment, those that will proceed the paintings in technological know-how or agriculture for complex levels and should no doubt wish to pursue extra classes in arithmetic. He has for that reason tried to jot down a ebook easy within the primary rules of arithmetic and even as has endeavored to make useful functions to the fields of technology and agri tradition, at any place attainable. He feels thorough wisdom of the fabric lined during this paintings will permit the second one kind of pupil to effectively pursue a path in analytical geometry by means 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 fabric, to Professor I. W. Smith of the North Dakota Agri cultural collage for utilizing the cloth in mimeographed shape and supplying many worthy feedback, to Dean D. A. Roth VI PREFACE rock of Indiana college for interpreting lots 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 collage of Pennsylvania for his beneficiant permission to exploit the higher a part of his Tables of Logarithms as a element of this ebook. I. L.
