Number of pages: 264
All unnecessary discussions and scholia have been avoided, and such methods have been adopted as experience and attentive observation, combined with repeated trials, have shown to be most readily comprehended. No attempt has been made to render more intelligible the simple notions of position, magnitude, and direction, which every child derives from observation, but it is helieved that these notions have been limited and denned with mathematical precision.

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.

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.
