Excerpt from The Stone-Millis Arithmetics Advanced

The Stone-Millis Arithmetics have been prepared with a view to adapting the teaching of arithmetic more adequately to the interests and to the needs of children of the present day.

The adaptation to children's interests is secured through the use of the play instinct in the primary grades, and through the use, in all grades, of problem material relating to the various activities of children in and out of school, and to facts touching their experiences more or less directly. The adult point of view and the interests of adults have not been unduly obtruded into the work. In the second and third grades, especially, numerous games have been introduced that have been found, by actual use in the schoolroom, to be of intense interest to children, and to provide excellent drill work. Much problem material correlated with the hand work or industrial arts work of the modern school has been given. Many groups of problems relating to the common phases of community life with which the child comes into daily contact, have been used, such as collecting the mail, getting the coal supply, problems of the fruit vender, the parks, railroad traffic, etc.

Underlying this attempt more adequately to adapt the teaching of arithmetic to the interests of children, is the authors' belief in the fundamental principles of education:

I. All mental growth comes through the self-activity of the individual pupil in solving situations that to him are concrete and vital.
