Online Floating Rulers to Measure Length

To help students learn how to measure with a ruler, I focus on minimizing the number of tic marks on the ruler at first. The image below shows an excerpt from a WORD document with a halves ruler that I use and an instructional strategy. It also contains a quarters and an eighths ruler that students can slide around the WORD document as shown above and in a video explaining this artifact and how I created it.

This is useful for distance learning as well as in class. Here is a link to the WORD document with the rulers shown in the video.

    Randy, I love this way of using the MathAids worksheet for measuring! I use their worksheets all the time. Do you think that the floating ruler would work if I created it using a Google Doc?
