matics, University of California:

Of all the books I have seen I consider Walsh's Primary and Grammar School Arithmetics the best. The inethod adopted, known as the “Spiral Plan," appears to be based on sound pedagogical principles, and I am glad to see a number of subjects included in the advanced portions of the book which are often considered too difficult, but which really make the subject easier and more interesting. I am especially pleased with the chapter on Geometry. A child, leaving the grammar school, should not be ignorant of the elementary notions of Geometry, with which he is confronted every day.
