3-d Graphs in Calc
Hi, I am in Calc III at a college.....
and Now we are working on gradients, 3-d graphs
polar equations, etc.
I sometimes have a problem drawing/visualizing
these 3-d graphs.....any suggestions on how
to overcome this will be VERY GRATEFUL!
I am new to the bbs.....so I do not know how to
find out if it has been answered or not
could someone mail me and tell me where to look for the
In JHS I spent one quarter learning drafting as part of wood shop.
This taught me perspective drawing and plan drawing which, I think,
greatly helped with the problem your struggling with. Nowadays
computers a VERY useful for visualizing 3-D data, graphs and plots.
See if you can find an SGI machine and someone who knows how to use
it at your college.
