Just a quick post today (to make up for my last 3 being sooo long)!
Does anyone else have students who can’t seem to draw a decent coordinate plane on a piece of graph paper? I never would have thought that tracing a horizontal and vertical line on a piece of graph paper would be difficult for anyone to do, but I have some students who can’t seem to draw a straight line (even with a ruler)…
Obviously if the coordinate plane isn’t drawn correctly, it is impossible to graph correctly so I went online in search of a page of coordinate planes that I could print out. I found a bunch that had 4 or 6 coordinate planes on a page but they seemed to waste alot of space to me, so I made my own sheet with 12 coordinate planes on it that I will be printing double-sided so students can use it to complete 24 graphing problems (and I can avoid the headache of having to look at problems being completed on imperfect coordinate planes.
If you have students who suffer from the same inability to draw straight lines as mine, click the image below to download and print the pdf of 12 coordinate planes.
Thanks for reading,
