Excerpt from The Arithmetical Table-Book, or the Method of Teaching the Combinations of Figures by Sight

IN my University Arithmetic, published in l 84 6, Arithmetic is treated as a science, having its own peculiar language. The alphabet of that language is the ten characters called figures. The combina tions of these characters, according to certain laws, afford the means of expressing every idea connected with the science of numbers. The language of arithmetic is but the result of these combinations.

The train of reflections thus suggested induced me to believe that elementary arithmetic might be taught by this method with great success, and a recent visit to the schools in Providence, Rhode Island, under the care of Mr. N. Bishop, City Superintendent, and a corps of 'very able teachers, has fully confirmed me in that impression.

The author is much indebted to Mr. Bishop, and to the teachers acting in conjunction with him, for many valuable suggestions. Indeed, but for their favorable Opinion of the method here illustrated, verified by satisfactory experiments, this Elementary Book, presenting the subject of numbers to the minds of children in a new light, would not have appeared in its present form.
