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.

The preparation necessary for the profitable study of the following course of Mathematics is a knowledge of common Arithmetic, and some acquaintance with Geometry, as taught in Euclid's Elements. We shall commence with a treatise on Algebra.

The book combines analytic geometry and topics traditionally treated in college algebra that depend upon geometric representation. Through this combination it becomes possible to show the student more directly the meaning of these subjects.
