The Teaching of Arithmetic: Details for Experiment

by David Eugene Smith - 1909

Besides these subjects that may be designated as more or less general, there are many details that demand investigation. These are partly arithmetical and partly psychological in nature, and belong quite as much in one field as another. So far as the investigation itself is concerned, the trained psychologist is the only one who could be expected to secure satisfactory results. Some of these details have already been mentioned in this article, and a dogmatic opinion has been expressed concerning them. It is proper, however, to set them forth more at length for the use of investigators. At my request my colleague Professor Henry Suzzallo, who has given the matter much attention, has made out a list of such experiments as occur to him, partly general and partly special, and has kindly permitted me to embody them in this article. I therefore insert them without comment, it being desirable that, in this place at least, they should appear with as little expression of opinion as possible. The rest of this article, XVI, is, therefore, to be considered as Professor Suzzallo's.
