A 2H pencil, if you don't know, is semi-hard. It's good for maths and graphs, but not as good as the 2B for doing drawings and shading. But, just using the 2B/2H meant that they could be rubbed out neatly so long as you had a WHITE rubber. The Big Pink One always failed to clean up after itself. It'd leave a faint pinkness to the page, and it was so unwieldy that you couldn't easily get to /just/ the bit you needed to erase. Similarly, the ones on the tops of the pencils were good, but got dirty, chewed, worn down, and soon you were scratching the page with the iron collar around the rubber tip.
These white square erasers, however, were downright perfect. They have a nice clean corner (8 to choose from, I suppose), so you could pinpoint the bit to erase. Because they're white, they leave no marks or residue, and because they have the card around them they're not prone to being chewed, snapped or have grubby fingerprints on them.
The short and long edges between the corners at the ends are great for slightly larger erasings, say a line graph or some ven-diagram filling-in that went wrong. And finally the nice flat rectangular end is perfect for really big jobs, like erasing whole pictures.
Essentially, these are not just erasers, they're a whole erasing toolkit, specifically designed to sit comfortably in the hand, remain functional, do their job and create the minimum of fuss.
Let's face it, when you make a mistake, you want to forget about it and move on, right? What's the point of an eraser that forces you to go back and re-work the erasure over and over again? If you're in an exam, neatness counts for marks, and having the ability to quickly rub out your errors, and get on with the right answer translates directly into better grades.
As a parent thinking about your children's grades, you need to ask yourself: "Is it better for my kids to have a classical, quality, stylishly designed eraser that gets them better grades, or should I get that sparkly pink unicorn that smears glitter all over their geography homework?".
I think we both know that we want our kids to do better at school. Just say "no" to the sparkly unicorn, and say "hello" to the ultimate in pencil-erasing technology. It's not spangly, or futuristic, it's timelessly classic, and when you use it you feel like a GOD. They say that we learn from our mistakes. Well, now you can learn from more mistakes in less time! Make as many mistakes as you like! Get your Ph.D in mistakes, trying all kinds of things while your stylish friend is still trying to get the black smears off a picture they drew of the atom because they stupidly put three electrons in an S-shell (come on, we've all done it, and we know better now!), or gracefully lower those cumulus clouds from their too-lofty location in the final Geography GCSE because we mis-read "strato-cumulus" as "stratus"!!
Oh, what mistakes we've made in our lifetimes, and what things we've learned. If you don't buy this eraser it'll just be the first mistake you'll make of many for the rest of your life. Buy this, and every mistake you make from now on will lead you inexorably towards higher-learning, enlightenment and joy.
Seriously. These are excellent. They're just right in every way. Get them.
Inevitably by the end of each term one of the kids will have lost their maths set or left it at school on the day they need to do maths geometry homework.
The best price we have found is on Amazon.
There are a couple of steps we would recommend based on experience:
1. If ordering for a child consider whether you need to keep a spare set in reserve
2. Label the tin and ALL the components before giving to your child
3. Show the kids how to close the tin properly - and accept that however well they claim to have closed it you will find it open in their bags.
With our kids I estimate each of them lose one set every two terms - would be interested in others experience.
Most often, I use these erasers for changing appointments in my diary which I write in using fine tipped mechanical pencils. I have found them just as effective for removing mistakes on sketches (though perhaps a little TOO effective for smudging work). Their size, shape and texture also make them suitable to be cut to a point if needed.
Overall, I would strongly recommend Oxford plastic erasers because they do the job and offer great value for money.
I use it everyday and is very compact and has all the benefits of a 30cm rule without the size, and all the benefits of a small 15cm rule.
I have also been using it for a long time and it is very durable and has not broken. I love the design and it’s very sleek.
Overall this is a must have for anyone who uses a ruler a lot about doesn’t have a place to store a big 30cm rule. It’s amazing and I definitely recommend it.
The pencil which connects to the compass isn't especially acceptable quality, however, you can change that clearly. The compass likewise comes somewhat free, yet – at the cost – it is fine. On the off chance that you are at GCSE level or higher, you would likely need to put resources into something somewhat more costly, for more noteworthy precision. I do cherish the tin however which is a decent, conventional plan and wards everything stuffed off perfectly.
The pencil which attaches to the compass is not particularly good quality, but you can change that obviously. The compass also comes a little loose, but – for the price – it is fine. My son is in KS3 and this is fine for him. If you are at GCSE level, or higher, you would probably need to invest in something a little more expensive, for greater accuracy. I do love the tin though which is a nice, traditional design and keeps everything packed away neatly.

La plantilla es de goma flexible y la punta del compás no pincha. Además, trae un papel plastificado que contiene un espacio para el horario escolar por un lado y varios elementos matemáticos que sirven de "chuleta" por el otro, para que los estudiantes puedan recurrir rápidamente a ellos en caso de consulta.
non credo lo ricomprerei.
la scatolina è ben fatta e resiste all'interno dello zaino senza che il contenuto si "danneggi"
Mais le système de fixation est vraiment trop ferme donc compliqué pour des enfants qui ont peur de forcer!
et surtout déçus car une seule chute au sol et la regle s'est séparée en 2 morceaux
