Figure This!

Sketch two thermometers side by side. Label one with the freezing and boiling points in degrees Celsius, the other with the same points in degrees Fahrenheit.

Then determine the temperatures halfway between freezing and boiling on each thermometer.

A change in degrees Celsius is proportional to the corresponding change in degrees Fahrenheit.
