Coordinate planes are a staple of linear algebra, and having ready access to printable versions of these tools can be a big help when students are learning how to graph equations. I’ve had a meager collection of printable coordinate planes on the site for some time, but admittedly they’ve fallen into some dis-repair. Converting the older coordinate planes into PDF format and adding new homework templates has been on the to-do list for some time, and I’m pleased to announce they are finally all live on the site.
If you visit the new coordinate plane page you’ll find the not-quite lost single page, 4 quadrant coordinate planes that have lurked in a corner of the graph paper gymnasium for a while, ever hopeful that someone would find them there and ask them out to dance. These lonely grids are now happily socializing with many of their peers, including inch and centimeter dimensioned coordinate planes, planes with quadrant labels, and a new set of coordinate planes that are numbered and dimensioned along the edges of the grid instead of directly on the axis lines.
Also, you’ll find a completely new set of coordinate plane homework templates that are setup for single problem, two problem, four problem or six problem work. Print the size you need depending on how much work space or grid space you need to solve your particular problems, and those homework assignments will look super sharp.
You can check out all of the new pages at the link below, and if you have suggestions for more layouts please leave a comment!
Finally, I didn’t want the graph paper page to feel too left out, so I also added dot paper and isometric dot paper to the party there. If you’re looking to do some 3D sketches, the isometric dot paper is a great tool, but either format can also be used for a round of the old ‘dots and boxes’ paper and pencil game that kept me and my girlfriend occupied during 10th grade history lectures…
