Cazoom Maths Teaching Resources: Graph Paper

What is the resource?

This printable PDF provides blank graph paper with squared grids. Variations in grid line boldness are offered. Suits secondary level learners primarily.


Why is graph paper important?

Graphs offer a way to visualise maths patterns and real-world information:

  • Understanding change: Science experiments track growth, decline, etc. on graphs.
  • Finance: Stock fluctuations, income & costs – it makes more sense as a graph.
  • Problem-solving: Graphs let us 'see' what equations mean, aiding analysis.
  • Design: Maps, layouts, and even animation planning rely on coordinate grids.


Why is this resource helpful?

Simple but powerful, grid paper supports maths across many topics:

  • Plotting points: Builds foundations of coordinate geometry from first steps.
  • Graphing equations: Turns abstract algebraic symbols into visual lines and curves.
  • Data representation: Creates bar charts, scatter plots, and more, making trends clear.
  • Customizable scale: Each square can represent diverse values to fit the problem.
  • Printable PNG: Ideal for including in worksheets, exams, and even online homework.

This resource encourages understanding. Graphs translate complex maths into pictures, which builds intuition and analysis skills.
