Excerpt from Questions and Exercises on Stewart's Lessons in Elementary Physics

The following pages have been drawn up with the aim of making Mr. Stewart's excellent work more useful in elementary teaching.

Part I. consists of questions upon the text of Mr. Stewart's book which are intended to be direct and exhaustive. Opinions differ as to the value of such questions. No doubt a thoroughly competent teacher will ask questions in his own way with the best effect; but unfortunately such teachers, at least in scientific subjects, are not numerous. In all cases the questions will be found useful for review and examination purposes.

Parts II. and III., which form the principal part of the work, have been written with two objects in view. First, to stimulate original thought on the part of the student, and to give the teacher the means of testing thoroughly the student's knowledge of principles. Secondly, to make certain needful additions to the felicitous but cursory sketch of Mechanics, Hydrostatics, and Pneumatics, contained in the first two chapters of Mr. Stewart's book.

Molecular Physics is rapidly assuming the character of an exact science; and in proportion as this takes place, the importance of a good knowledge of the general laws of Motion and Force, and of the ability to reason deductively, increases. Nothing can give training in deduction better than the study of Rational Mechanics.
