Master Innovations is a Christian company that creates and sells math manipulatives. I recently received their Master Ruler starter set to use and review. Included in what I received was two rulers(standard, and metric), a measurement full color poster, and a measuring workbook to be used with the rulers.
The Master Ruler is not your standard ruler. I have never seen anything like it before. The standard ruler is 5 rulers in one, and the metric is 4 in one. They are made of sturdy clear plastic and connected by thick plastic rings. With the standard ruler you can measure inches, 1.2 in., 1/4 in., 1/8 in., and 1/16 in. The Metric provides decimeter, centimeter, and millimeters. The workbook is 24 pages long and contains a measuring chart, instructions, fun worksheets that use both rulers, and an answer key. It is geared to a wide range of students, so some pages are easier than others. All three of my big kids were able to enjoy the worksheets, and rulers.

My kids love math manipulatives, and the Master Ruler is definitely one they will continue to use and enjoy. Even my husband found it useful the other day for a project, and told me how cool he thought it was. You can purchase Each Master Ruler from Master Innovations for $9.95, and the workbook is $15.95. They can also be purchased as a kit for a discount. Master Innovations also carries other products: Master Clock, Master Fractions, Master Angles, and educational posters!
I really can't think of any
The Master Ruler starter Kit was given to me free of charge from Master Innovations in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was given.
