The * Image* is the cover of

*Iconic Arithmetic: The Design of Mathematics for Human Understanding*, the book version of much of the content on this website. This book is the first volume of three and is not yet published. The first part of

*Iconic Arithmetic*describes

**Ensemble Arithmetic**and depth-value notation. The second longer part describes

**James Arithmetic**, which expresses all the rules and operations of standard arithmetic using three simple axioms.

Here the book has been divided in two segments. It has been designed for two-page layout, with a distinct right and left page format. Please set your PDF viewer (probably Acrobat) for View>PageDisplay>TwoPageView.

### FIRST and LAST

The Iconic Arithmetic Volume 1 First and Last selection includes the contents, preface, bibliography and index of Iconic Arithmetic Volume I, as well as Chapters 1,5 and 15. *Chapter 5* includes the axiomatic basis of all systems described in the three volumes.

### The MIDDLE

The Middle selection includes the technical details of the two systems explored in Iconic Arithmetic Volume I. ** Chapters 2-4** introduce ensemble arithmetic with depth-value notation.

**includes the axiomatic basis of all systems.**

*Chapter 5***introduce James arithmetic and its relationship to the arithmetic of numbers. The Middle section is**

*Chapters 6-14**not*included herein, however its contents derive from the Arithmetic and Algebra sections of the iconic mathematics website.
