The primary object of arithmetic is to enable the student to acquire skill in computation. In addition to the attainment of this essential end, great benefit is derived from the exercise of the reasoning powers and their consequent development.

The text is organized to provide the pupil with the maximum opportunity to do genuine thinking, real problem-solving, rather than to emphasize the drill or manipulative aspects which now commonly require most of the pupil's time.
