By: Arthur Henry Barker (Author)

All up-to-date teachers of engineering and applied sciences generally now recognize the vast superiority of graphical over purely mathematical methods of imparting instruction of almost every description. The former are much more convincing to the student, because they appeal to the eye, the training of which is one of the chief objects to be aimed at in the education of an engineer. There is no doubt that this method is capable of great extension with advantage. In this little book, for instance, we see graphical constructions of a very simple character employed to teach what, to the beginner, are somewhat abstruse mathematical principles. The attempt to employ purely mathematical, in preference to graphical methods, seems to me quite as absurd as attempting to teach geography by giving the position of towns in terms of their latitude and longitude, and explaining the shape of a country by giving the equation to the coast-line instead of by employing the graphical method, Le. exhibiting a map.
