Using Graphing Paper for Physics and Math Coursework

  1. Feb 26, 2015 #1
    Does anyone use graphing paper for Physics, as well as Math classwork? I like graphing paper, but the kind I use (5x5 from Walmart) doesn't seem to be working out very well. I am having a difficult time reading what I am writing on the paper. I like using graphing paper because it allows me to keep my work straight and neat. I know this is probably a silly question, but I just wanted to know what everyone else uses.

    I prefer computer paper. It's open, white, and blank. I can organize each page however I like, I can throw equations down one side and write physical explanations on the other, I can change my spacing without having the lines strike my words or math...
    Personal preference.
    Once you get into 3D, you'll probably give up on graph paper in all honesty.

    Use calculation paper, not graph paper

    We have engineering paper in our college bookstore. It's $9.00 for 200 sheets. Is that expensive for engineering paper?

    Like the person above who uses computer paper, I also find this very helpful. You can get a sketch book with ~100 blank white sheets in it for maybe like $3. I use this for all of my classes.
