Recently books have been published along with a great many courses of study, teacher's manuals, bulletins, and articles in educational magazines on the subject of Teaching of Arithmetic.

The purpose of the writers is to give some practical methods in teaching arithmetic in the Fifth Grade. The old methods of teaching arithmetic are gradually dying, hence we are attempting to show some practical methods by which better results may be secured.

In treating this problem, we have divided the study into the following headings:- First is the Aim; second, The Already Accumulated Knowledge; third, New Knowledge; fourth, Kinds of Fractions; fifth, Practical Methods of Teaching Common and Decimal Fractions and Problem Solving.
