RECOMMENDATIONS OF RAY'S ALGEBRA.
[The peculiar excellences of RAY'S ALGEBRA, PART FIRST, are, its unusual simplicity and progressiveness, combined with thoroughness. While its price is only FIFTY CENTS, it is as full and comprehensive as other ALGEBRAS that sell for seventy cents to one dollar.]
FROM MR. KNOWLTON, (from Brown University, Providence, R. I.) Teacher of Mathematics in Cincinnati Central High School.
(Extract from the "School Friend.")
"It is but a few months since this book was issued from the press, and although we are acquainted with a dozen other Algebras of similar pretensions, and no mean value, yet from the examination of no one of them have we risen with so much pleasure and satisfaction, as from the examination of this. In graduating the plan of his work, the author has shown great care and ingenuity, and in its execution, has manifested a familiarity with the wants and difficulties of young students, and a tact in obviating them which has rarely been equalled. The principles are briefly stated, then illustrated and impressed on the mind by a numerous and choice selection of examples. All portions of the work bear ample testimony to the truth of a remark in the preface, that every page was carefully elaborated by many years of toil in the schoolroom. The statement and illustrations of the principles indicate that the ignorance and misapprehensions of the pupil were met and fathomed by a keen and watchful eye in the teacher, and the proper remedies applied, and that these remedies were tested by repeated trials through a long and systematic course of teaching, and finally recorded for the use of students yet to be."
From B. C. HOBBS, of Friends' Boarding School, Richmond.
I consider RAY'S ALGEBRA, PART FIRST, worthy of a place in every school. The author has fallen upon an ingenious method of securing a mental preparation, before the more difficult exercises of the slate are required. The work is clear and comprehensive, and a selection of superior formulæ has been made for the solution of difficult problems. Could an objection be made to the work, it would be that the subject is too much simplified. The cheapness of the work brings it within the means of every one.
B. C. HOBBS.
From P. CART R, Professor of Mathematics, etc., in Granville College.
I have examined with much interest a copy of RAY'S ALGEBRA. As an elementary work for beginners, and especially for younger pupils, I consider it as one of the best with which I am acquainted. Like all the elementary works of Professor Ray, it is distinguished for its simplicity, clearness, and precision, and furnishes an excellent introduction to the lar ger and more difficult works of this beautiful science.
From MR. CHASE, (from Amherst College, Mass.,) Principal of Mt. Carmel Academy. I have made a careful examination of PROFESSOR y's ALGEBRA, PART FIRST, and 1 am compelled to say, that although expecting from his pen an admirable treatise on the subject, it far exceeds my highest expectations. I believe that it ought to take precedence of all others now in use.
G. A. CHASE.
From JAMES P. MASON, A. M. Professor of Mathematics in Bethany College. RAY'S ALGEBRA, Part First, is the best book for common schools and academies, that I have scen.
