This is a standard cartesian system graphing paper. There are horizontal and vertical lines 5mm apart. Graph paper is often used in engineering, it's common to see engineering graph paper printed on light green paper.
The larger size graph paper be useful when using the graph paper for measuring. Also when using it with underdeveloped motor skills, for example when working with children. It's also handy when giving presentations where the audience has to be able to see it from far away.
Also know as Quad paper four boxes make up an inch. Sometimes it's also been refered to quadrille paper. The only difference between this an the other graph paper listed here is the size of the boxes.
This graph paper is used to draw three-dimensional figures. It has lines representing all three dimensions: length, width, and height. It can be used for isometric art, architectural designs, and plotting three-dimensional functions.
Log is short for logarithmic, this graph paper is used to plot data wher the values change expotentially. That is the values go up and down drastically very quickly. This graph paper has sections that compress large ranges of values allowing you to plot large and small numbers while still being able to see everything.
A traditional grid with horizontal and vertial lines is designed to plot cartesian cordinates where a location is represented with a horizontal and vertical location. Polar cooridnates represent another coordinate system where a location is specified by the angle and distance from a fixed point. This graph paper allows you to plot those points.
Graph paper is paper meant to be written and drawn on. It is made of up fine lines arranged vertically and horizontally as to create many small boxes.
Graph paper is useful when you want to draw things to some kind of scale, instead of measuring each line with a ruler as you draw it you let the graph paper serve as a guide. Graph paper is available in many different measurements, for example each box can be centimeter or an inch in length.
For example anything using the cartesian system can make use of graph paper since the cartesian system which is essentially a grid. This makes graph paper ideal for taking notes on math related subjects. For example to plot and study lines, functions, and data.
You can use graph paper as a two dimensional ruler. Instead of plaing the ruler on the object you can the object on the paper.
You can also use it to do multi digit math. Having multiple number in a small space can make it confusing to determine which numbers sould be added, subtracted, multiplied, etc. Graph papers and keep those number neat and aligned.
It can also be used as a writing aid, specially for children leaning to write. For example you can use a three block row. Capital letters can take up the top two rows. Lowercase letters should take up only the second row. Letters that dip under the line like the lowercase "p", "g", and "y" can take up the bottom two rows. Also a block can help children separate words which is helpful since children often have problems with spacing.
You can fill in circles in black or color to create graph art.
You can use it to create crossword puzzles.
You can use it to create a maze.
You can use it to play the dot game with dots, this works when the grid lines are very light, that allows you to use a pen or pencil to darken them, also it helps if the grids are large.
