Slide Rule Handmade Oversize for Teacher Classroom Demonstration


Slide rule handmade oversize for teacher demonstration in the classroom. Back in the day when slide rules were all the rage for mathematical computations, oversize teacher's models were made available for demonstration purposes. These came with a minimum order of student slides. Not all schools could afford the minimum order to receive the demo. An enterprising individual handmade this demo from salvaged tongue-and-groove pine boards complete with cursor. This demo rule has become an iconic art object in today's world of global computerization.
