Elements of Applied Mathematics
by Cobb Herbert E.
Publisher: Ginn and Company 1911
Number of pages: 292
This book of problems is the result of four years' experimentation in the endeavor to make the instruction in mathematics of real service in the training pf pupils for their future work. We have attempted to relate arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry closely to each other, and to connect all our mathematics with the work in the shops and laboratories.

There is no real reason why, with patience, an ordinary person should not understand what mathematicians do, why they do it, and what mathematics is. The purpose of this little volume is to show how and why mathematical methods grew up.
