The development of the work in my own hands has been attended with an elimination of qualitative exercises, or illustrative experiments, and a reduction of the number of exercises at first attempted. My experience and study lead me to believe that the best results are attained by comparatively few exercises, the greater part of them being quantitative in character. Quality of work, rather than quantity, should receive the most consideration. The tendency in my own work has been to strive after greater accuracy from year to year.

To allow pupils to do quantitative exercises in a careless manner, with small regard for accuracy, is to do them an injury. Under these circumstances a quantitative exercise ceases to be such and becomes qualitative- and, moreover, it is a pretense and a sham.

The position here taken as to number and kind of exercises is, I believe, in accord with the best thought and practice of the time. In support of this it is necessary only to mention the report of the Physical Conference to The Committee of Ten.In the selection of experiments and methods of procedure great care has been taken to adopt only those that are capable of giving results of a considerable degree of accuracy in the hands of pupils.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
