APPLIED ARITHMETICS—The Three Essentials

By N. J. Lennes and Frances Jenkins The authors have fully appreciated the necessity of making the subject interesting to the child and have consequently been very happy in their choice of illustrations and application of principles to the child's spontaneous interests, thus connecting arithmetic with the

activities in which the child is interested and engaged. TEACHERS' EDITIONS - Quite unlike anything you have previously

seen, are now ready.

Will Your School Children Be Graded

Properly Next Semester? PROBABLY no device which has been made for schools

has ever met with the instant response which has been given to group tests of intelligence and achievement. School people have long felt the need for something which would do what the tests are doing. The use of group tests in the army demonstrated to everyone their effectiveness. The Journal of Educational Research says, “We may expect within the next twelve-month several million school children will be tested and the number will repidly increase from year to year." Present sales for the tests we publish are likely the best indication that the schools are getting results from using them. The demand for them is unheard of. Larger edition after large edition in rapid succession are sold before the printing is finished. Orders come from everywhere, from the largest cities and the smallest country one-room schools. Specimen sets of these tests will be sent postpaid at the prices named: National Intelligence Tests, 50 cents; Otis Group Intelligence Scale, 75 cents; Terman Group Test of Mental Ability, 15 cents; Haggerty Intelligence Examination, 65 cents; Haggerty Reading Examination, 50 cents; Courtis Standard Practice Tests in Arithmetic, $1.50; Wilkins Prognosis Test in Modern Language, 10 cents. inist issued a booklet, entitled A Brief Treatise on
