Graphing 101

Graphing in your algebra class is different from scientific graphing.  In Chemistry 1A, most instructors prefer that you graph by hand and not use a computer program.  Graphing by hand ensures that you grasp the basic concepts of using a graph as a tool.  I have had students use this handout for other classes:

An Introduction To Graphing

This paper is similar to the graph paper in your lab book.  Use this for scratch paper to lay out your graph.  I find it useful so that I don’t waste paper in my lab book.  Since most of you have not bought your lab books yet, you will use this paper to turn in the graph in the handout , ‘An Introduction to Graphing’
