The book was not designed only to familiarization with Arabic, Roman numerals and multiplication table but it also presented the teaching of all four arithmetic operations. In familiarizing with four arithmetic operations, the emphasis was put on the method of purposeful tasks and oral tasks which fostered logical mastering of operations and developed students’ thinking.
