Printable Paper Rulers

Printable Paper Rulers

There are some ruler templates (in PDF and PS) that can be printed out with paper and can be disposable. This is really handy when you need to measure something but don’t have a ruler around. Another good use of this is to print it off to a overhead transparencies paper:

    … “Print them on overhead transparencies and cut them with a paper cutter and you have a bunch of rulers the students can’t write on!! Plus, I prefer to measure with a transparent ruler.” [a reader]

    “I did use the un-numbered rulers this week, and really like them. I copied them onto overhead transparency film, then cut them. They’re a lot more durable than paper, and very flexible, Best of all, they’re see-through, which is really helpful when kids are measuring “odd” things they need to see. The only warning; you must have a VERY sharp paper-cutter, or you’ll end up with pretty rough edges. You can easily hand-cut them, to use for general measuring, just not as a straight-edge line tool. Anyway, they sure work great in my science lab,” [a reader]

    “I am a science lab teacher and needed an inexpensive way for students to measure tadpoles while still in the containers. I ran your centimeter rulers off on trasparency paper in the copier, cut apart, and viola!!!! The students love them. They say they are crisper and clearer than the see through plastic rulers that you can buy!” [a reader]…

    Pretty useful!

    Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

    Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

    • Gather new material, both specific and general.
    • The Mental Digestive Process
    • Drop it
    • Poof, the idea appears
    • Work it

    Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
