rules and so he does literally, but the pupil teaches himself the spirit of the rule."-Spectator.
"Mr. Hughes tells us, that his intention in composing this treatise, is to furnish children with elements of arithmetic; the questions being framed upon the ordinary wants and requirements of daily life,' as better calculated to exercise the ingenuity and intelligence of children, than calculations based solely upon mercantile transactions.' The idea is a good one. Clearness and simplicity in exemplification, are of signal importance where very young people are in question; and the examples here given are as simple as could be wished. Mr. Hughes also intermingles examples deduced from dealings that may take place in the general course of trade. There is a juste milieu in this matter of adapting books of instruction for the young, and we are glad that Mr. Hughes does not lose sight of it."-Weekly Chronicle.
"The book on Arithmetic is constructed on a simple method, suited for beginners, and is manifestly the production of one who appreciates the difficulties which the youthful mind experiences at the outset of the study, and is anxious as far as possible to diminish them. His plan is to teach by examples, without, in the first instance, laying down abstract rules. rationale of each process is explained in a simple manner, and the examples are not only well contrived for illustration, but for awakening and interesting the mind. They relate to familiar subjects, many of them are ingenious and striking. We have not often met with such a sensible school-book.”— The Scottish Guardian.
"The Explanatory Arithmetic,' besides exhibiting the methods employed in conveying to young persons a knowledge of the first principles of arithmetic, contains numerous carefully constructed examples for the use of elementary and other schools."-Bristol Mirror.
"Mr. Hughes, the able teacher, of Greenwich Hospital, gives us a Manual of Explanatory Arithmetic, which is as simple and clear as elementary instruction could desire."-Literary Gazette.
"An elaborate help for elementary instruction in arithmetic."-John Bull. "This is indeed Arithmetic made easy.' The explanations are clear and simple; the examples copious, well arranged, and framed upon objects and occurrences in which children are likely to feel an interest."-Eastern Counties Herald.
