AN advent TO arithmetic With functions to technology and Agriculture via ISATAII LESLIE MILLER Professor of arithmetic, South Dakota kingdom collage of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts F. S. CROFTS CO. ny ----MCMXXX COPYRIGHT, 1930, by way 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 unearths that the common highschool graduate has now not built in himself a mathematical kind of reasoning. lie for this reason hopes that this therapy may perhaps in a few degree accomplish this goal. the 1st few chapters are dedicated to a radical overview of highschool algebra, for the writer is confident that almost all collage newcomers desire substantial drill at the primary tactics of algebra earlier than making an attempt a truly wide learn of arithmetic. In getting ready this booklet the writer has saved in brain varieties 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 may no doubt wish to pursue extra classes in arithmetic. He has as a result tried to jot down a e-book uncomplicated within the basic ideas of arithmetic and even as 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 scholar to effectively pursue a direction in analytical geometry by means of a direction 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 university for utilizing the fabric in mimeographed shape and providing many worthwhile feedback, to Dean D. A. Roth VI PREFACE rock of Indiana collage for studying 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 better a part of his Tables of Logarithms as a section of this publication. I. L.
