This course, primarily for teachers and supervising principals, will make an exhaustive examination of each of the subdivisions of arithmetic as it is traditionally presented, to determine: (1) Whether there is not much in the usual presentation which should be eliminated because it is no longer useful; (2) Whether the change in the needs of society does not demand in each subdivision a change in the content, or at least a shift in emphasis; (3) Whether it is not possible to find an order and method of presentation in each case which has been tested by experience and shown to give the desired result with a considerable saving of time. To assist in determining these questions, as well as to give perspec tive, a few of the best recent discussions will be read and considered. From time to time lectures will be given dealing with that body of information regarding business and business practices which the teacher should know and yet which can not be found in texts. The course aims to be practical rather than theoretical and experimental. To this end sheets containing supplemental exercises and problems on each topic will be distributed, in the hope that such a body of exercises and problems will render the use of the present state text more effective. Likewise, those taking the course will be expected to work frequently at the blackboard, in order to become familiar with the methods recommended, as well as to gain that accuracy and facility in the work which the teacher needs. This course will be of special interest to teachers in the grammar school. No University credit. M Tu W Th F, 10. 16 North Hall. A double course in Analytic Geometry (ten hours a week) will be given should a sufficient number of students apply for it, provided those taking it confine their election to this and one other course. PHYSICS. LUDWIG BOLTZMANN, Ph.D., Professor of Physics, University of Vienna. ELMER EDGAR HALL, Ph.D., Instructor in Physics. The physical laboratories will be open daily, except Saturdays, from 9 to 12 and from 1 to 4. Students who choose courses in Physics are strongly advised to devote enough time to this subject to secure a real gain from the effort. The laboratory fee will be $5.00. |
