E-Rigging Rules

Posted by Beth Smith on 5/18/2018 to News
In life measuring is a math tool that you will come across readily -from comparing heights with your friend as a child to see who is taller to measuring for materials needed for a cable railing system on your very first home as a young adult to measuring the length needed to build that zip-line for your teenager. After hearing of a co-workers, child's Pre-K class learning about measuring, we wanted to create something special for them. We wanted to encourage that lesson of measuring for the students and help them bring what they were learning in class, home. A ruler seemed to be the best idea. We wish this class and all graduating classes best wishes for a bright future.
