First Book in General Mathematics
by Frank S. Pugh
Publisher: P.P. Simmons 1917
Number of pages: 285
This textbook covers algebra, geometry and trigonometry. The author of this work has felt that there is a place in the intermediate high school, where a course that will sum up the arithmetic of the grades, and give some insight into the coming mathematical problems of algebra and geometry, might be of use, especially if this course is linked up with the work in mechanical drawing, manual training and elementary surveying, so that the student may see the application of the mathematical theories that he is studying.

These materials show the evolution of logarithmic ideas over 350 years. A quick review of mathematics as it was practiced for hundreds of years would be helpful for many students in understanding logarithms as they are still used today.

The basic theme of this book is precalculus within the context of problem solving. The pace is faster than a high school class in precalculus, we aim for greater command of the material, especially to extend what we have learned to new situations.

The theory of equations develops anew and in greater detail various fundamental ideas of calculus for the simple case of polynomials. It affords a useful supplement to differential calculus whether taken subsequently or simultaneously.
