Abstract

In 1830, Warren Colburn gave this advice to teachers wishing to teach children arithmetic: "It is necessary rather to furnish occasions for them to exercise their own skill in performing examples, than to give them rules. They should be allowed to pursue their own method first, and then they should be made to observe and explain it, and if it was not the best, some improvement should be suggested ... Examples of any kind upon abstract numbers, are of very little use, until the learner has discovered the principle from practical examples" (Colburn, 1830/1970, p. 15-16).
