Useful Information, Chart 3

Product: School Smart Flexible Cover Skip-A-Line Marble Patten Composition Book, Grade 3, 9-3/4 x 7-1/2 in, 100 Pages, Red

Sold by: Classroom Direct

Cost: $1.87

This product is made for 3rd graders (for some reason), so presumably the Useful Information will be especially useful for 8-year-olds. I am hoping that it will list the number of marbles that can fit into a pocket (29); the average weight of a frog (depends: if it is the pee pee kind, then really light weight); or number of pices of gum that can be jammed into a mouth (no upper limit).

Hidden Highlights:

  • 1 cubic foot of water weighs approximately 62.5 pounds;
  • The ton and hundredweight …are… in common use in the United States.

Useful Information, Chart 1

Product: School Smart Hard Cover Marbleback Composition Book

Sold by Walmart for $1.87

This chart is on the outside back cover. What is interesting is that the book has another Useful Information chart on the inside back cover, just in case one wasn’t enough. I would guess that about 90% of the information is the same in both charts, though there are differences. You may notice that there are no metric-to-metric or metric-to-U.S. standard conversion tables.

Back coverHidden Highlights:

  • A cord of wood is equivelent to a pile 8 feet long, 4 feet wide, and 4 feet high;
  • 6 feet = 1 fathom;
  • 1 acre = 160 square rods;
  • 40 square rods (i.e., 1/4 acre) = 1 rood; therefore
  • 1 acre = 4 roods
