In this article, the use of the string number line is different; there is a definite requirement for the distances between numbers to be relative to their values because this is essential to developing an understanding of linear scale. Being a physical representation, the string number line allows students to manipulate the numbers and the distances between them, which makes it useful for developing students' understanding of scale and allows teachers to focus on developing children's understanding of the relative positioning of different numbers.
A dual- motor drive system, linear scale, and full closed-loop functionality provide machine accuracy and repeatability to generate absolute measurement data, which is essential for accurate machine-2-machine (M2M) communication.
