6. (a) If one boy measures 44 inches and another

measures 48 inches, how many inches taller is the second

boy than the first? This is what part of a foot? (b)

If one girl's height is 63 inches and another's is 71 inches,

what is the difference in their heights? This number of

inches is what part of a foot?

7. (a) Find the height of the oldest girl that weighs

120 pounds, (b) Find the height of the youngest boy

that weighs 120 pounds. Write the difference in their

heights as a part of a foot.

8. (a) Look for 130 pounds as a weight for a boy.

What age and what height are given for this weight?

(b) See how many times you can find this weight for

either a boy or a girl. Get the heights and ages for each

one of these.

9. How old and how tall is a girl who weighs 149

pounds? What is the age and what is the height of a boy

who weighs this same amount?

10. What is your weight? How tall are you? What

is your age? What does the table say that you should

weigh at your age? Do you weigh more or less? How

much?

11. Are you tall enough for your age? Are you too

tall? Do you weigh enough for your age? How can you

tell by comparing your height, age and weight with this

table?

LESSON XXIV.

How to make a Height and Weight Table for the Boys

in your room:

1. (a) Draw an oblong 4 inches by 5 inches. The

4-inch side is the top. (b) Draw a line one-half inch

below the top line of this oblong, (c) In this space print

neatly "Height and Weight Table for Boys." (d) Draw

another line one-sixteenth of an inch below the line you

have already made.

2. (a) Make another line which is one-half inch below

the line made for (b) in problem 1. (b) How many six-

teenths of an inch are there between this line and the one

made for (d) in problem 1? (c) Divide the first inside

line into eight equal parts, (d) How wide should each

of these parts be? (e) What is the easiest way of locating

these points?

3. (a) Make points on the bottom line which are the

same distance apart as those you have made above, (b)

Connect the top and bottom points with straight lines,

(c) How many places have you made? How many lines

are there?

4. (a) In the first little box to the left print the word,

"Height." (b) From the school register get the ages in

years, using the nearest birthday, for all the boys in the

room, (c) Arrange their ages in a column, beginning with

the youngest and ending with the oldest, (d) Now place

these ages in the remaining little boxes, putting the young-

est in the box next to the one with the word, "Height."

5. (a) Measure all the boys (without shoes) in the

room, (b) Find the height in inches of each boy. (c)

Arrange these heights in a column, being careful to begin

ARRANGED FOR INDIVIDUAL WORK 63

with the lowest number and ending with the highest.

(d) See that you have as many numbers as you have boys.

(e) Now place these heights in this order in the first

column to the left. Make as nice, neat figures as you can.

6. (a) If possible, have all the class go to the scales

where you can take turns in weighing each other without

shoes. It might be well to have your teacher or some

one who has used scales to check up each weight, (c)

Take down the weight in pounds or pounds and half-

pounds, being careful that you get the right weight for

the right boy.

7. (a) Pill in the table by putting the right weight

opposite the right height and under the right age. (b) If

this table does not show your best work, make another.

8. Make a table in this same way for the girls in the

room.

9. (a) How many boys are there in the room whose

weights are below normal? How many above? (b) How

many girls are there whose weights are below normal?

How many above? (c) What can these boys and girls do

to make their weights about right?

10. (a) Which boy lacks the most of being the right

weight? (b) About how much must he gain each month

to have the normal weight for the next year? (c) Which

girl is farthest below normal? (d) How much should she

gain each month to get her weight up?

LESSON XXV.

1. (a) Make a card upon which to keep your own

height and weight for each month of the year, (b) How

many spaces shall you need for the weights? (c) How

many for the heights? (d) How wide a space should you

64 SUGGESTIVE LESSONS IN NUMBERING

have for each? (e) What would be a convenient size for

the card!

2. (a) Upon heavy paper make a six and one-half

inch square, (b) Why is this a convenient size? (c)

Draw a line one-half inch below the top line, (d) From

the top line draw a line to the bottom; that is, one-half

inch from the left side.

3. (a) Divide the rest of the top line into twelve equal

parts, (b) Do the same with the bottom line, (c) Con-

nect these points with lines extending from top to bottom,

(d) How far apart are these lines?

4. (a) Put the name of the present month in the first

space. In the second space place the name of next

month; the next in the third space, and so on until all

twelve months have been named. Practice printing so

that you can space your letters well, (b) Try to get your

height and weight on the same day each month, and

record measurements and weights in proper place.

5. How to make a Classroom Weight Record: (a)

Secure a sheet of drawing paper that is 16 inches by

14 inches. Draw a line that is % inch from each edge,

(b) Inside of these lines you have just made, draw others

at a distance of % inch, (c) Inside of these lines draw

still another at a distance of % 6 i ncn - (d) Either shade

or ink the space between the first and second lines. These

three lines form the border, and none of the inside lines

cross them.

6. One of the 14-inch sides forms the top. (a) Measure

down 2y inches from the top. Place points on either side.

Connect these points by a heavy line, (b) % inch below

this, draw another heavy line, (c) Measure up from the

bottom 1% inches, (d) What space at the top was used

up in the border? At the bottom? At both top and

bottom? (e) What is the sum of the space that has been

measured off at both top and bottom? (f) How much

space is left?

7. (a) Locate points on both sides *4 inch apart. How

many will there be on one side? (b) Connect points that

are opposite by drawing light lines. (c) How many

spaces are there?

8. (a) 2% inches from the left side, draw a heavy line

that extends from the first heavy line at the top (below

the border) to the heavy line at the bottom, (b) Measure
