This book will also serve to help the prospective school teacher to become inured in some of the important ideas of mathematics—both classical and modern.

The main reason for its introduction is the continuing progress in Mathematics which is hinted at in the section "The importance of mathematics" in the previous article "Why choose Mathematics".
