# Math Graph Paper - Axis Graph Paper

### What is Math Graph Paper?

Math graph paper, also known as "axis graph paper" or "Cartesian coordinates paper," is a piece of graph paper with a pre-drawn X and Y axis. The origin of the graph is positioned at the center of the paper. This type of graph paper is most often used in math assignments for graphing functions through a series of negative and positive numbers.

This type of graphing helps students understand the shape of a line or curve associated with an equation or function. Many math teachers believe that students who produce a few graphs by hand before using a computer program obtain a deeper understanding of equations and graphs.
