Well, hello there!!! I'm so glad you stopped by! :) I bet you'd like to get my posts delivered right to your inbox, now wouldn't you? So why not sign up for Feedburner? Check it out, it's right there in my sidebar! Thanks!! :)

What are the pros of this product? Well, first of all, the whole flip thing it totally cool and the kids think it's great. Also, speaking of the kids, the rulers seem quite durable. The color coding and the fact that you can measure each type of fraction separately makes it much easier to read and helps you to visualize the fractions more easily. (Again, it's hard to explain and if you don't read the site or watch the video you probably won't be able to understand what I mean.)
What's not to like? None to report! :)
The Crazy Mom take: First off, I have to admit, we haven't really needed to use this ruler for much more than measuring inches as part of our regular school day. However, I did let Bear take the workbook to work in for fun. (I just love that girl, she thinks any kind of school is fun and is my most enthusiastic review assistant.) She loved it.
As far as whole flip thing goes, I found it rather cool. I know in the past I have tried to sometimes figure out measurements on a regular ruler and it has proven difficult. Now, my eyes are going (should have let the doc give me those dreaded bifocals) and I need all the help I can get.
What's the bottom line? Master Ruler Standard or Metric $9.95/Master Ruler Workbook $15.95

I can't really recommend this product.
This is a good product, but isn't right for everyone.
Most homeschool moms will find this useful.
This is great, and I would recommend it to anyone!!!
