It's to add extra grip when taking shots. By adding chalk to the cue tip you create extra friction between the surfaces resulting in a more accurate shot.

It's also good to chalk up before adding a bit of "English" to your shot, this is when you aim off centre of the cue ball to alter the behaviour of it after it has been struck or after it hits its target.

My old man used to tell me before he left this ****** world, five rules of playing pool for cash. Lesson #1, always shoot with a cigarette in your mouth.
Lesson #2, always know the table before you shoot.
Lesson #3, make sure you chalk that stick... REAL GOOD... before each shot!
Lesson #4, never make a bet... if you can't pay the debt.
Lesson #5, if you lose, make sure you stand up straight and tall.

Your Caps Lock isn't making it easier to read what you are typing. It is hard to take someone seriously when they type in full capital letters.

Chalk helps the leather pad get better traction on the white ball when you hit it. Much like rock climbers use chalk on their hands so that they won't slip as easily.

I didn't know that people didn't know why you chalk up...

It's to round the edge of a flat end when using your stick.

It creates friction between the cue and the ball so the tip of the cue doesnt slide off the ball...

The chalk creates friction between the tip and the ball...I thought that was common knowledge.

At first i didn't know that though..kinda did it to look "pro". haha.

The chalk sticks to the leather tip of the pool cue and gives it better traction on the cue ball - like a car tire tread on a road - to stop the tip from skewing when it strikes the cue ball.
