Page 182 - A LOGICAL OUTLINE OF ARITHMETIC. — One great error in our systems of elementary instruction is the lack of logical method. With the desire of lending a word toward the correction of this error, we present the following logical outline of Arithmetic. All numerical ideas begin with the unit. It is the origin, the basis of Arithmetic. The unit can be increased and divided, hence arise Numbers and Fractions. Every number is a synthesis, every fraction the result of an analysis.
