The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 48

VI.—Senior Class (Mr. Kneen's)

VI.—Senior Class (Mr. Kneen's).

The work gone over comprises—Bookkeeping by single entry, and the following rules of arithmetic:—Vulgar fractions, decimals, square measure, with many practical questions; square root, simple and compound interest, stocks, proportion, discount, and percentages. These rules have been thoroughly gone over, especially vulgar and decimal fractions, to which we devoted two entire months. A good knowledge of these having been attained, the rest of the work was extremely easy. The pupils have been most attentive, and nearly all of them did home exercises every night. The major part of the class I would strongly recommend to join Mr. Kyle's class for mathematics next session.

Prize List.—Arithmetic: James Farquharson, 1; Arthur Tidey, 2; John Robertson, 3; John Bevin, 4; Donald Maclean, 5. Bookkeeping: James Arthur, Thomas Mant, William J. Bardsley, Edward McFadyen, Samuel Jenkins, James Robertson, Archibald MacGregor, Alexander Dempster, Alexander Wilson, honourable mention.
