OUR VISION AND DIRECTION
Provide students and teachers with graphing tools that will save them time and tedium
Promote the education of mathematics
Make graphing math equations more FUN!
Freestone Peach was created in 1995 by an
enterprising young college student who was working full time
besides trying to complete a college degree. He found that he was
spending far too much time completing his algebra
homework, primarily because of all the graphing that was required.
student decided that there had to be a better way to graph
his math homework without drawing the same framework repeatedly before
actually drawing the slope of the equation or completing the rest of the
work. Obviously, since a lot of math is done with a pencil, including
drawing the X and Y axis and their tick marks, if he made any mistakes
and had to erase something on the graph, the paper got very messy.
A light bulb came on and the student made
some prototypes of an idea he had for incorporating graphs commonly
used in math with 3" x 3" releasable adhesive backed paper pads. He
successfully used them for completing his own homework. He also made
some extras and handed them out to fellow math students to observe their
reactions. From the enthusiasm and excitement that his MiniPLOT® graph paper pads generated when other students first saw them, it was clear that he had struck on a winning idea.
Today, Freestone Peach is
privileged to count as our valued customers thousands of schools,
school districts, text book publishers, private tutoring companies,
bookstores, private and government businesses, state and local math
organizations, teachers, tutors and students at all levels of education. Both teachers and students tell us that MiniPLOT® graph paper pads make graphing math equations by hand faster, easier and MORE FUN!
Thank you for your continued support of our MiniPLOT® graph paper products that save time and tedium for math and science students, teachers and tutors.
