• What is a broken ruler? A broken ruler is when an object is fixed to a certain point on a ruler, and the other part of the ruler is either missing or the object cannot be moved. This allows students to have a deeper understanding of measurement, as they are not starting at 0 but still must figure out the number of inches long an object is.

What standards are covered in the Broken Ruler Measurement Activities?

• 2.MD.A.2: Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.
• 2.MD.A.5: Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.
• 2.MD.A.1: Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
• 2.MD.A.2: Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps.
