The emphasis, therefore, is laid upon the content of the problem, upon the meaning of the result obtained - its bearing upon the trade work or upon the subject under discussion. Hence only actual or live problems are presented, and a live interest in them may reasonably be expected.Since the object of trade instruction is to produce a worker, who has acquired not merely the necessary mechanical skill, but who has learned to combine intelligence and interest with skill, great care has been taken in arranging these problems to dwell upon such features of the various trades as will be likely to arouse and stimulate the personal interest of the pupils.Serving as a background for the purely trade problems are a number of significant industrial and civic problems. A few historical problems, also, are given to show the connection between past and present economic conditions, particularly those related to the trades in which women and girls are engaged.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
