Excerpt from Plane and Solid Geometry: Suggestive Method The treatment of the theory of measurement has been modified to make it more easily understood. A treatment of the application of pro portion has been suggested that will make the pupil more independent in his work, and at the same time it has not increased the difficulty of the subject.
The book, as now arranged, is sufficient for all college entrance requirements, yet it can be completed, including all the exercises, by, high-school pupils in one school year. For those schools that devote a. Year and a half to the subject additional work has been placed in the Appendix, to which references are given in the text, so that the various propositions and exercises can be taken up in logical order. A fuller treatment of the theory of limits, which many teachers desire, is also given in the Appendix.
