I have been teaching fifth grade in the South Bronx for three years, so I am a relatively new teacher. I consider myself a very good math teacher but there are some concepts which are almost impossible for me to explain to elementary kids. I have the darnedest time trying to explain fractions of an inch to my kids, You know, like 3/4 of an inch, 1/8 of an inch, and so on. So, one day another teacher recommended that I use rulers that have the fractions labeled. "That's a great idea", I thought to myself. However, I don't have any of those rulers. This proposal is a simple request for 35 of those fraction rulers to help my students better understand measurement and fractions.
