Mathematics for Common Schools: A Manual for Teachers, Including Definitions, Principles, and Rules and Solutions of the More Difficult Problems (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Mathematics for Common Schools: A Manual for Teachers, Including Definitions, Principles, and Rules and Solutions of the More Difficult Problems The unnecessary work now done by many pupils will be very much lessened if they find themselves compelled to dispense with the rubbing out they have an Opportunity to indulge in when slates are employed.
The additional expense caused by the Introduction of paper will almost inevitably lead to better results in arithmetic. The arrangement of the work will be looked after; pupils will not be required, nor will they be permitted, to waste material in writing out the operations that can be per formed mentally; the least common denominator will be deter mined by inspection problems will be Shortened by the greater use of cancellation, etc., etc. Better writing of figures and neater arrangement of problems will be likely to accompany the use of material that will be kept by the teacher for the inspection of the school authorities.
The endless writing of tables and the long, tedious examples now given to keep troublesome pupils from bothering a teacher that wishes to write up her records, will, to some extent, be discontinued when slates are no longer used.
