A quotation for today

George Chrystal (1851 - 1911)

The teaching of Algebra in the early stages ought to consist of a gradual generalisation of Arithmetic; in other words, Algebra ought, in the first instance to be taught as Arithmetica Universalis in the strictest sense.

Preface to Algebra (1886)
