Graph paper is one of the most underrated math tools. It is not just for high school students or engineers! Schoolchildren as young as six can draw on grid paper instead of blank or lined paper. Imagine being seven-years-old and having to draw a number line on a blank piece of paper. It is daunting to make your math model match your teachers and look perfect. But on 1 cm graph grid paper the lines are already there for you. You just have to print it on A4 paper pdf format. Our 1cm grid paper is quick to print and comes in blue lines only and printable as grey on a monochrome printer. Use it for maths, drawing, designing, patterns etc.## Graph paper can help students when creating, drawing and organising their work when using:*counting**adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing – lining up numbers vertically or horizontally**skip counting**collecting and representing data**geometry***
Students could also use it as a blank hundreds chart. We have our students practice counting to 1000 (one of our state standards) by filling in a blank hundreds chart. Graph paper is great for students to create their own crossword grid puzzles. When you use a graph paper you shouldn’t worry much about exact measurements for a grid box. It is impossible to draw graphs on a plain sheet of paper, especially charts that show complex data. Using a graph paper makes the data clear and one can study the diagram quickly. For example, to show a figure for inflation on a plain sheet of paper is confusing and complicated. However, on a graph paper, it shows any fall or rise clearly. ## The graph paper in mathematics can be used for different things:- To draw empirical data and check the results. A large amount of data is able to be shown graphically on graph paper. It is a very useful tool for mathematicians.
- Drawing linear diagrams. Mathematical experts use graph paper to draw coordinates and study linearity, similarity and congruence. Linear formulas are important mathematical functions and have several uses including physics.
- Engineers draw two-dimensional figures like cubes and cylinders. The graph papers are therefore useful for architects who are always drawing 2-dimensional figures to create structures.
- Engineers use graph paper in several different ways. Likewise architects, statisticians, linear programmers, school students and many more people use graph sheets to accomplish some of their respective tasks. These days graph paper is available in various formats online.
You can also use digital copies of the graph sheets to create grid diagrams. To see how we can help your child with math, visit www.mathsg.com.
