Subject: slide rule
I am a math tutor in HS. One time I was asked about "slide rule : An Everyday Mathematics tool for adding and subtracting integers and fractions (5 grade Study Links)". I tried to find an explanation for it on the Internet but I found nothing. I remember that before calculators we used a slide-rule for multiplication (by logarithms). Maybe in Everyday Mathematics they use a similar device with linear scale? Could you answer me and write where I can read about it? Thank you in advance. Your truly Yevgeniy Traube
