Note: Mathematics embraces three departments, namely: 1.
Arithmetic. 2. Geometry, including Trigonometry
and Conic Sections. 3. Analysis, in which letters
are used, including Algebra, Analytical Geometry,
and Calculus. Each of these divisions is divided into
pure or abstract, which considers magnitude or quantity
abstractly, without relation to matter; and mixed or
applied, which treats of magnitude as subsisting in
material bodies, and is consequently interwoven with
physical considerations.
