Excerpt from Wheeler's Graded Arithmetics

Business Forms, Insurance, and Taxation. It also devotes un usual Space to the Problems of the Home; giving extended treat ment to the Budget Plan to the relative expense of owning or renting property; to problems of furnishing and maintaining a' home; and to the teaching of practical Thrift and Economy. Furthermore, it covers the ordinary problems of Manual Training, and, under Additional Topics for Study and Reference, provides certain work that, at the discretion of the teacher, may be treated as essential where a prescribed course demands it.

The book is purposely limited to recognized essentials, and it intentionally avoids certain tendencies and theories which, while attractive as experiments, have not yet established themselves as a part of practical arithmetic. The authors have endeavored to give a practical foundation, to provide simple methods, and to confine concrete problems to those which actually occur in average home and business life; and they believe that all obsolete topics have been eliminated, that the book gives an interesting trans formation from abstract to applied arithmetic, and that'it will be a definite preparation for the everyday problems of the child's life.
