A Course of Elementary Mathematics
by John Radford Young
Publisher: Wm. H. Allen 1862
Number of pages: 658
The preparation necessary for the profitable study of the following course of Mathematics is a knowledge of common Arithmetic, and some acquaintance with the principles of Geometry, as taught in Euclid's Elements. A student ignorant of these initiatory, but most important departments of elementary science, would scarcely seek his first lessons therein from a book such as this. We shall commence the volume now in the hands of the reader, with a treatise on Algebra.

This book covers algebra, geometry and trigonometry. The author felt that there is a place in the intermediate high school for a course that will sum up the arithmetic, and give some insight into the mathematical problems of algebra and geometry.

These materials show the evolution of logarithmic ideas over 350 years. A quick review of mathematics as it was practiced for hundreds of years would be helpful for many students in understanding logarithms as they are still used today.

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.

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.
