Mathematics in the Elementary School: General Discussion of the Work of the Last Three Grades


by David Eugene Smith & F. M. McMurry - 1903

GENERAL DISCUSSION OF THE WORK OF THE LAST THREE GRADES (A) MODERN SUBJECT-MATTER The work of the last three grades is chiefly devoted to the application of arithmetic to the affairs of life. It is, therefore, desirable to know the nature of the problems demanded by the business of to-day, by the science, manual training, and other subjects in related courses in the school. This matter needs therefore to be considered at some length from the point of view of the teacher. Knowing thus, in general, the kind of subjects that should constitute the principal topics for study in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades of school, we have a standard for judging the worth of the traditional topics and processes customarily dealt with in these years. In other words, we can decide as to what is really important in social life, and what is really used; and we can also decide what is not so useful, and what may even be cast aside as having slight value.
