Elements of Applied Mathematics
by Cobb Herbert E.
Publisher: Ginn and Company 1911
Number of pages: 292
This book of problems is the result of four years' experimentation in the endeavor to make the instruction in mathematics of real service in the training pf pupils for their future work. We have attempted to relate arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry closely to each other, and to connect all our mathematics with the work in the shops and laboratories.

The goal of this work is to try to find the most general solution to many popular puzzles for which we normally heard only the particular problem. These mathematical puzzles often require specialized knowledge in some branch of Mathematics.

The book showcases how fascinating mathematics can be, by explaining some of the most interesting mathematical ideas to children and the general public. Diagrams, videos, slideshows, problems and interactive games let the content come to life.

Metamathematics of elementary mathematics. This book can be viewed as a sequel to Mathematics under the Microscope, but with focus shifted on mathematics as it was experienced by children (well, by children who became mathematicians).
