Number of pages: 264
All unnecessary discussions and scholia have been avoided, and such methods have been adopted as experience and attentive observation, combined with repeated trials, have shown to be most readily comprehended. No attempt has been made to render more intelligible the simple notions of position, magnitude, and direction, which every child derives from observation, but it is helieved that these notions have been limited and denned with mathematical precision.

The primary object of this textbook is to supply a large number of easy examples, in the belief that the educational value of the subject lies far more in the power to apply the fundamental facts of geometry, than in the ability to reproduce proofs.
This geometry text is written for the Pre-university students to serve as an introduction to Higher Elementary Geometry, either as a subsidiary or a main Subject. The aim is to give to the Students certain Elementary ideas about the subject.

The subject-matter of the book is that of the first three books of the Elements, but there is a great departure as regards the method. As the pupil proceeds, he is helped to build up ideas in the same way as in the elements of physics and chemistry.
