A yard stick is divided into 3 feet, which are divided into 12 inches each which are again divided into 1/8" segments each(usually). A yard stick is used for measuring the length of an object the same way a ruler might be used. Often this would be used for an object more than 1 foot but less than 3 feet in length.
