How do I remove all labeling from a small grid to be used for a math test? I have created the grid with \graphpaper but get coordinate labels that I don't want.

    Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – clemens Dec 7 '12 at 11:32

This can be easily done with TikZ:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{tikz}

\begin{document}
Simple grid:

\medskip
\tikz\draw [thin] (0,0) grid (5,5);

More complex grid:

\medskip
\begin{tikzpicture}
    \draw [thin, step=0.1, gray] (0,0) grid (5,5);
    \draw [thick, gray] (0,0) grid (5,5);
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

The venerable graphpap package does not provide a command to do that, but it's not hard to write your own command that does what you want.

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{graphpap}
\makeatletter
\newcommand\graphpapern[1][10]{\leavevmode\@gridn{#1}}
\def\@gridn#1(#2,#3)#4{\@grid@n{#1}{#2}{#3}(}
\def\@grid@n#1#2#3(#4,#5){%
\@tempcnta=#4\relax
\divide\@tempcnta#1\relax
\advance\@tempcnta1\relax
{\thinlines\@nonumvgrid(#2,#3){#1}{\@tempcnta}{#5}
\@tempcnta#4\relax
\divide\@tempcnta5\relax
\divide\@tempcnta#1\relax
\advance\@tempcnta1\relax
\@tempcntb5\relax
\multiply\@tempcntb#1\relax
\thicklines\@nonumvgrid(#2,#3){\@tempcntb}{\@tempcnta}{#5}
\@tempcnta#5\relax
\divide\@tempcnta #1\relax
\advance\@tempcnta1\relax
\thinlines\@nonumhgrid(#2,#3){#1}{\@tempcnta}{#4}
\@tempcnta#5\relax
\divide\@tempcnta5\relax
\divide\@tempcnta#1\relax
\advance\@tempcnta1\relax
\thicklines\@nonumhgrid(#2,#3){\@tempcntb}{\@tempcnta}{#4}}%
\ignorespaces}
\makeatother
\begin{document}

\graphpapern[10](0,0)(200,200)

\end{document}
