We received the Standard Ruler ($9.95), the Metric Ruler ($9.95), the Master Ruler Workbook ($15.95), (these three items can be purchased together as part of the Master Ruler Starter Set at $41.25), as well as a Marvels of Measurement Poster ($10.00).

The Master Ruler Workbook was very helpful, as I found that I had trouble getting started with how to use the product with my kids. It had plenty of lesson ideas, and the consumable pages of the workbook are allowed to be copied for family use - very helpful for those of us with larger familes!
The Master Ruler has been, and will continue to be, well used in our house. Not only does it help children learn basic measuring skills, but it teaches fractions at the same time. My older son, who has been struggling with fractions suddenly gained a very real understanding of how to simplify fractions just using this ruler! We haven't done this yet, but the Metric Ruler can also be used to teach decimals.
The Marvels of Measurement Poster has been a fantastic addition to our wall. I'm pretty picky about what posters end up hanging on the wall, but this one was definitely worth the space. Though we haven't done much to actually study it, the children seem to be absorbing the facts on the poster - well enough even to know some answers to trivia questions at Thanksgiving (when we play lots of family games together).
