Notes Don't "shrink to fit"! You should disable any options like "shrink oversize pages to paper size" or "scale to fit paper" on your print menu.
My plan was to make all the ruler pages small enough that no browser was tempted to shrink them while printing. I'd like to hear if anyone else has this problem, and with what software and page.
Accuracy Accuracy can be outstanding, but will depend on your printing setup. My cheap inkjet printer has an unmeasurable error vertically, but is too big by 0.
So I get great vertical rules. But my horizontal rules, while better than, say, a random cheap plastic ruler, are not as good as a quality ruler.
And if one's printer had worse problems, like a slipping paper feed, one might see larger errors. Note that card stock may feed differently than paper.
Laser printing has fewer such issues. For a quick plausibility check, you can see if your vertical and horizontal rules match up. But if you really care about accuracy, you should of course validate the printout against a high-quality ruler.
I've not heard of anyone having problems. Please let me know if you do. A quick and rough test is to measure an object of known size. Such as paper -- US 8. Or currency -- US dollar 2. As long as we don't try to compare results with outside sources, the students will learn just as well.
Other notes Please let me know if you find these rulers of use, so I'll know whether it's worth doing further work on them. Card stock can be used instead of paper it's stronger.
Overhead transparencies can also be used. Especially with a sharp paper cutter. Plus, I prefer to measure with a transparent ruler. 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.
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! Crafts "I was working on growth charts for my children. I used a 4' long board approx.
I saw one in a craft store which is where I got the idea. However they used a tailors tape measure to mark the growth portion but they only go up to 60" and I hope my kids will grow taller than 5'!Writing Paper PDF Generator.
