The Present Teaching of Mathematics in Germany: Chapter VII. The Higher Schools for Boys in Prussia


by Robert King Atwell — 1912

(2) The preparation and status of the teachers. (3) The method of instruction.” ii Of these three contributing causes, the first may well deserve a little attention at this time, since it is not discussed in any other chapter.
