Fifth Edition. 8vo. 158.

Elementary Statics.

Designed chiefly for the use of Schools. Crown 8vo. 6s.

The design of this Dork is to make the principles of Statics intelligible to boys who have attained a fair knowledge of Algebra and Trigonometry. The laws of Statics, the composition and resolution of forces, and the doctrine of the lever, are first deduced experimentally; and the student having been thus rendered familiar with the fundamental truths of the subject, is subsequently introduced to their mathematical demonstration. This arrangement forms the most striking peculiarity of the book. Each chapter is accompanied by an imaginary conversation between the tutor and pupil, in which the difficulties of the subject are discussed, and collateral information introduced. There is also appended to each chapter an Examination Paper of Questions upon its contents.

Elementary Dynamics.

Designed chiefly for the use of Schools.

Crown 8vo. 58.

The two books bound together, 108. 6d.

It is written

This volume is a sequel and companion to the preceding.
as nearly as possible upon the same principle, having appended to
each chapter an imaginary conversation and a paper of Examination
Questions. The three Laws of Motion are dealt with in three
separate chapters; each of the earlier laws being followed out into
its consequences, and illustrated by practical applications, before
another is introduced. It is believed that this arrangement will be
found very much to facilitate the progress of beginners. There is
a chapter upon the impact of balls; and the treatise concludes with
the doctrine of the simple cycloidal pendulum.

A Collection of Problems and Examples.

Late Fellow and Tutor of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge.

The Principles and Practice of Arithmetic.

Comprising the Nature and Use of Logarithms, with the Computations employed by Artificers, Gagers, and Land Surveyors. Designed for the use of Students. Eighth Edition. With a New Appendix of Miscellaneous Questions. 12mo. 4s. 6d.

In the present treatise the Author has endeavoured to combine what is necessary of the Philosophy of the Science of Arithmetic with the practice of the Art of Numbers.

Throughout the work he has attempted to trace the source of every rule which is given, and to investigate the reasons on which it is founded: and by means of particular examples, comprising nothing but what is common to every other example of the same kind, to attain in Arithmetic the kind of evidence which is relied upon in Geometry, or in any other demonstrative science.

A Second Appendix of Miscellaneous Questions, (many of which have been taken from the Examination Papers given in the University during the last few years,) has been added to the present edition of this work, which the Author considers will conduce greatly to its practical utility, especially for those who are intended for mercantile pursuits.

Designed to enable the Student to become acquainted with the principles and applications of Trigonometry, without requiring of him anything more than a knowledge of the Elements of Geometry and a facility in the common operations of Arithmetic and Algebra.
