Arithmetic, Educational testing, Primary school students
First published in 1952, this pamphlet suggests there is need for a new approach to the subject of applied arithmetic. But social utility, if not the sole justification of arithmetic, is the main one. If it were applied as a touchstone to the litter of wearisome material that clutters up the present courses, much would be found false and useless. Perhaps if we could agree upon the ends that arithmetic should serve, we would have gone a long" way towards finding the means to attain them.
