Excerpt from Constructive Work

The science of Number in the primary grades, until somewhat recently, has been much less useful as an educational agency than it should have been.

Consisting mainly of formal combinations of numbers, without apparent reasons for presenting them to the children, it has failed to give that high degree of mental discipline which, when properly presented, it is so well calculated to afford.

A new era has dawned upon the science of Number in the primary grades; a stepping stone to formal work has been discovered, so carefully graded that the child can follow it with interest and pleasure. Constructive number work, when properly taught, affords the finest mental discipline of any study in the primary grades. It gives quickness of perception, the power of concentration and an intellectual grasp that can be acquired in no other branch of study. The author has tried to make this work not only simple, progressive and practical, but has tried to adapt it to the wants of those who believe that constructive number should be caught in connection with the other branches of work. Great care has been taken to make all dictations so simple that the youngest child can follow them. The gradation of the work will be found one of the most distinctive and valuable features.

Pupils upon entering school are given only formal foldings. Gradually the work with the ruler is introduced, using inches at first and working into halves, quarters and eighths. A variety of dictations is given.
