Applying Arithmetic: A Handbook of Applications of Arithmetic. Part II: Operations.

Usiskin, Zalman; Bell, Max

Chapters 5 through 10 of a 14-chapter, three-volume work on arithmetical applications are contained in this document. Each chapter details the "use classes" of one broad arithmetical concept. (A "use class" of a concept is a set of examples of real world uses of the concept which share a common structure). Each chapter contains: an introduction and summary; three to six sections, each devoted to one use class and containing a general introduction, questions, and comments; suggestions for teaching or illustrating a given concept; questions which test understanding of the ideas presented; and notes and commentary, with reasons for selecting particular use classes, related research, and short essays on issues related to applying the concepts. Topics of the chapters include: uses of addition, discussing putting together, shift, and addition from subtraction (chapter 5); uses of subtraction, discussing take-away, comparison, subtraction shift, and recovering addend (chapter 6); uses of multiplication, considering size change, acting across, and rate factor (chapter 7); uses of division, considering ratio, rate, rate divisor, size change divisor, and recovering factor (chapter 8); uses of powering, discussing change of dimension, growth, and notation (chapter 9); and uses that combine operations, such as those involving exactly two classes (chapter 10).
