Elementary Practical Mathematics
by John Perry
Publisher: The Macmillan Company 1913
Number of pages: 364
We show a student how to work problems, exercising his common sense, and we give him experimental proof of the correctness of his results. Our methods of reasoning are those logical methods which are adopted in common affairs, and we claim that he understands and takes an interest in what he is doing, and feels confidence in his results.

This work has been written for the adult. The endeavor has been to make the student feel that he is in actual touch with real things. The intention has been to lay as broad a foundation as is consistent with the scope of the work.
