The subject-matter of these pages is virtually that of the first three books of the Elements, but there is a great departure as regards the order and the method. As the pupil proceeds with his experiments and observations he is helped to build up ideas about lines, points, triangles, circles, etc., in precisely the same way as that followed in dealing with the elements of physics and chemistry.

This book is intended for use by a parent and a child. It is recommended that the parent have some familiarity with geometry, but this is not necessary. The parent can simply read the chapter before teaching the child and then learn it together.

The primary object of this textbook is to supply a large number of easy examples, in the belief that the educational value of the subject lies far more in the power to apply the fundamental facts of geometry, than in the ability to reproduce proofs.
