Arithmetic in whole numbers, wherein all the common rules, having each of them a sufficient number of questions, with their answers, are methodically and briefly handled. II. Vulgar fractions, wherein several things not commonly met with, are there distinctly treated of, and laid down in the most plain and easy manner. III. Decimals, in which among other things, are considered the extraction of roots; interest, both simple and compound; annuities; rebate, and equation of payments. IV. A large collection of questions with their answers, serving to exercise the foregoing rules, together with a few others, both pleasant and diverting. V. Duodecimals, commonly called cross multiplication; wherein that sort of arithmetic is thoroughly considered, and rendered very plain and easy; together with the method of proving all the foregoing operations at once by division of several denominations, without reducing them into the lowest terms mentioned. The whole being delivered in the most familiar way of question and answer, is recommended by several eminent mathematicians, accomptants, and schoolmasters, as necessary to be used in Schools by all teachers, who would have their scholars thoroughly understand, and make a quick progress in arithmetic.

A brief Account of the Festivals and Fasts of the Jewish and Christian Churches; with such others as are mentioned in the present new Calendar; very necessary for the better understanding the said Calendar. II. A Dissertation concerning Years, Months, &c. and the manner of their being settled in the World, for the better Computation of Time. Together with the Calculation of Scripture-Measures, Weights, and Coins: and an Observation concerning the exquisite Workmanship of the Tabernacle, &c. in the Time of Moses. III.

IV. The Uses of the Logarithms; shewing how to perform that Sort of Arithmetic in all its Parts, whether in whole Numbers, or in Fractions; with the Method of adding and subtracting Indices, both affirmative and negative. V. The Method of performing Multiplication and Division of Pounds, Shillings and Pence, by Pounds, Shillings and Pence, so as it may answer the Purposes of performing an Operation in the Rule of Three, where the Terms are composed of Mony only; or in Fellowship, where the Terms are composed of Mony and Time, by which it appears, that this Sort of Arithmetic is very curious, and perhaps not altogether useless. VI. Some Observations on the Weather; by which any Person is enabled to form to himself some Ideas of it for the Time to come; to which is subjoined, a Taste of Enigmatical Writing, together with the Character of a good Christian, set forth in twenty Paradoxes, with their Solutions.
