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 subject-matter of the book is that of the first three books of the Elements, but there is a great departure as regards the method. As the pupil proceeds, he is helped to build up ideas in the same way as in the elements of physics and chemistry.
