Count by 5's to 50. Begin with 1, 2, 3, or 4 and count by 5's Add each of the above columns up and down, beginning with 0, 7, 9, 18, 4, 22, 6, 17, 29, 8, or 14. DICTATION. Let the teacher dictate examples containing no figure greater than 5. There should not be more than twelve numbers, nor should any number be greater than hundreds of thousands. SUGGESTION.-The treatment of addition of 6's is similar to the treatment of the other numbers, and involves three distinct drills. 1st. The addition of the digits to 6. 2d. The addition of all numbers up to 59 to 6. SEE BLACKBOARD DRILLS for the 5's. 3d. Counting by 6's, beginning with 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. EXERCISES IN ADDING COLUMNS. (1) (2) (3) (4) 1 6 4 (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) IF Add each column up and down, beginning with 0, 5, 19, 4, 27, 6, 15, 23, 8, 22, or 11. DICTATION. Let the teacher dictate examples containing no figure greater than 6. There should not be more than twelve numbers, nor should any number be greater than hundreds of thousands. The numbers should be irregular, that is, not all contain the same number of figures. SUGGESTION.—Treat the 7's in the same way as the 5's and 6's, observing the three distinct kinds of drill up to 69. Another good written drill is this: Let the teacher arrange numbers and require pupils to add some given number to each of them. For instance, the teacher says : Add 7 to 8, 14, 6, 9, 24, 28, 16, 29, 44, 53. The pupils write 15, 21, 13, 16, 31, 35, 23, 36, 51, 60, if they add readily and accurately. Add each of the above columns, beginning with 0, 5, 19, 4, 27, 6, 15, 23, 8, 22, or 11. REMARK.—The units' figure of the sum of any number and a given number is always the same, whether the number is a digit, or simply fills the units' place. See Drill on 5's. REMARK.—The above arrangement of numbers in circles gives endless columns, and is an excellent device for utilizing the spare minutes in concert drills. The teacher points to the numbers and the pupils add silently until the teacher calls for results. Go slowly at first, but gradually increase in rapidity as pupils acquire facility in adding. DICTATION. Let the teacher dictate examples containing no figure greater than 7. No number should exceed millions. SUGGESTION.—The 8's and 9's are treated in the same manner as the other numbers.

DICTATION. Let the teacher dictate numbers containing no figure greater than 8. The numbers may be as great as hun. dreds of millions. Ir Add each of the above columns up and down, beginning with 0, 11, 17, 13, 18, 14, 12, 19, 10, 11, or 21. DICTATION. Let the teacher dictate examples of numbers containing any figure and not more than four periods. Let the numbers be irregular and contain ciphers. These inductive exercises are reviews of the facts of addition in the concrete. The pupil should name results without giving an analysis of his process. INDUCTIVE EXERCISES. ART. 29.-1.
