    Charles Gilpin Cook (Author)
This book is intended for those schools desiring a more practical and interesting course in chemistry. I ts purpose is to bring the pupil into closer contact with the things of everyday life, to give him an insight into the nature of those chemical processes with which all of us come more or less in contact, to furnish him with some chemical knowledge of the things necessary for his health and comfort and thus better adjust him to his environment. In doing this no attempt is made to treat the subject in a theoretical way: in fact, but little of the theory of chemistry is mentioned. The idea of atoms and the use of symbols and formulae have, however, been introduced after a few substances have been studied. The mathematical side of chemistry finds no place in a text of this sort, but a chapter on chemical arithmetic has been included in the A ppendix. The book is the result of classroom experiment and has grown out of an attempt in theB oys High School to adapt chemistry teaching to the needs of second-year pupils. The subjects chosen, however, have not been those which appeal particularly to boys, but are those which are of most vital importance to both girls and boys and, in general, are of equal interest to both.
