In this tutorial, we learn how to read a school box ruler. A ruler will be divided into inches, each inch will be divided in half. From there, it will be in quarters, then eighths, then sixteenths. Once you understand how the inches get divided up into halves, you will be able to read the ruler better. Start off by counting the small lines that you see on the ruler to get an idea of where the eight, quarter, and half inches are located at. After practicing this, you will be able to read a ruler quickly and be more efficient at measuring!
