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.

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.

For a generation this was the leading textbook on the subject of plane geometry in America. Topics covered: rectilinear figures, the circle, proportion, similar polygons, areas of polygons, regular polygons and circles, etc.
