    I Love to Print Graph Paper

    Younger math teachers may find this hard to believe, but there was a time when you couldn’t just run to the computer and print graph paper when you needed it. If, like me, you’ve taught math for many years, you can remember having to order graph paper from specialty catalogues or keeping your fingers crossed that Wal-Mart would have some in stock when you really needed it.

    Yes, before this handy little tool called the Internet became widely available, graph paper was a precious commodity for math teachers and students. But those days are over. Use the following sites to print graph paper the instant you need it. You'll find everything from rectangular grids to polar coordinates to logarithmic graphs, and you can customize according to your needs and preferences. And best of all, they're all free!
