We had a giant one up on the wall in the math lecture room at the Rochester Institute of Technology. It was used to teach incoming engineering students (like myself).

Yes – that is a 6-foot slide rule on the wall.  Couldn’t resist buying it years ago at a garage sale.  These used to hang on the blackboard in my high school chemistry class so they could teach us how to use them.
 
And my new Mach2 in the foreground just to make the photo appropriate for this forum J
