Category Description for Saxon K-3 Program:

The Teacher's Manual contains the actual lesson plans and information vital to the effective presentation of math concepts. The consumable Meeting Books are used during the teacher-student "meeting" in which concepts are introduced, demonstrated and practiced. If teaching more than one student at the same level, you will only need one meeting book. Consumable Student Workbooks are used in grades 1-3 only and contain student materials, flash cards and practice pages. The Math K Home Study Kit contains teacher edition and meeting book. Math 1, 2, and 3 kits contain teacher edition, meeting book, and a set of 2 workbooks. Manipulatives are a vital, integral part of the program; these are not included in the Home Study Kits, but are available through us also.

Category Description for Saxon Math:

Students like Saxon because they feel successful in math instead of overwhelmed.

The most popular homeschooling math program hands down! Highly recommended by both Mary Pride and Cathy Duffy, Saxon Math also wins our award for the "Most Requested Text." Saxon math is a "user-friendly" math program - even for Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus and other usually difficult math topics. Learning is incremental and each new concept is continuously reviewed, so the learning has time to "sink in" instead of being forgotten when the next topic is presented. Higher scores on standardized tests and increased enrollments in upper-level math and science classes have resulted where Saxon has been used in public schools. Students like Saxon because they feel successful in math instead of overwhelmed. Because of the format, children are able to work more independently.

It's foldable, so I can easily store it. It's clearly labeled with different measurements, so it will be easy for my daughter to use.

We use it for our math curriculum and to play around to measure anything in the house for fun and extra practice.

Needed for Horizons Math 3, which is NOT a complete curriculum as it does not come with any manipulatives or even suggest items to purchase. Thank heaven for Rainbow Resource!

what material is this item made from?
A shopper on May 4, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I bought this foldable yardstick/meter stick several years ago. It is made from durable plastic. We have had no troubles with this item, and I appreciate the small amount of space it occupies.
Is this the ruler that comes with the right start math manipulative?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Although I don't have any of the Right Start Math products, I did look at their website. Rainbow Resource's folding meter/yard stick looks identical to the one sold by Right Start.

Perfect yard stick for kids - and adults!
Our son loves this - how it folds, and how a meter is on the other side of the yard stick. What a great idea to have it fold up! It encourages lots of measuring and creativity!

Handy dandy!
What a great yard stick to have on hand. It is less likely to be used for sword fighting.

Great idea
I'm on my 4th of these rulers... so yes, I would buy it again! It's nice to have a foldable compact option for a meter/yard stick. The markings are clear and numbers are easy to read. However, the joints do break easily. Maybe it has something to do with having sons who are always looking for the next toy sword ... ? If handled gently these should last a while.

A Must-Have for ALL ages
We have used our meter stick for 12 years now and still going strong. One side shows the length of a yard while the flip side shows the length of a meter by comparison. Wonderful tool for math. Plus no one can resist the cool way it folds.
