As shown at http://home.comcast.net/~cy56/Grid.nb, I finally got a color
grid with x and y as arguments, but it's hard to believe there isn't a
simpler way to do it. It's quite a struggle to figure out how to specify the
colors. If high school students are going to be comfortable with doing these
visualizations, there needs to be a way to simplify this radically, I think.

I need to have the arguments x and y since I want to be able to transform
the grid by transforming x and y using the inverse transform.

RegionPlot[
  {0 < x < 1 && 0 < y < 1,
   0 < x < 1 && 1 < y < 2,
   0 < x < 1 && 2 < y < 3,
   1 < x < 2 && 0 < y < 1,
   1 < x < 2 && 1 < y < 2,
   1 < x < 2 && 2 < y < 3,
   2 < x < 3 && 0 < y < 1,
   2 < x < 3 && 1 < y < 2,
   2 < x < 3 && 2 < y < 3},
  {x, 0, 3}, {y, 0, 3},
  ColorFunction ->  Function[{x, y},
     Hue[\[LeftFloor]x\[RightFloor]/3, .5 + .5 \[LeftFloor]y\[RightFloor]/3,
1]],
  ColorFunctionScaling -> False
 ]


I still can't figure out how to use Table or whatever to get the region
specifications into a general function.
