How to make a simple paper slide rule.

Step 1: Download and Print

You need to download the PDF image of the slide rule from www.extremenxt.com/sliderule.pdf or from link below.  Print the page on paper as thick as your printer can handle.

<p>I made mine out of butter board so it would last longer</p><p>it still works!!!!!</p>
<p>This is just what I was looking for. I teach 4th grade math and some of my students are struggling with multipication and division. I was hoping to find a simple slide rule I could print out and this will fit the bill nicely. I suspect all my students will want to have their own. I have a feeling something old is about to become very cool again.</p>
<p>This would be a great way for schools to teach the lost art of math in your head. The students could even assemble it them selves.</p>
<p>Thanks, this is very useful.</p>
<p>Great work. I would prolly make one if I didn't still have my original engineering slide rule in it's carrying case. Is that not sad. LOL</p>
