O O (1) Graphs is Space Most of the commands needed for plotting with Maple are part of the plots package. Always start by loading that package if your work will include plots. with plots ; animate , animate3d , animatecurve , arrow , changecoords , complexplot , complexplot3d , conformal , conformal3d , contourplot , contourplot3d , coordplot , coordplot3d , densityplot , display , dualaxisplot , fieldplot , fieldplot3d , gradplot , gradplot3d , graphplot3d , implicitplot , implicitplot3d , inequal , interactive , interactiveparams , intersectplot , listcontplot , listcontplot3d , listdensityplot , listplot , listplot3d , loglogplot , logplot , matrixplot , multiple , odeplot , pareto , plotcompare , pointplot , pointplot3d , polarplot , polygonplot , polygonplot3d , polyhedra_supported , polyhedraplot , rootlocus , semilogplot , setcolors , setoptions , setoptions3d , spacecurve , sparsematrixplot , surfdata , textplot , textplot3d , tubeplot There are several ways to plot a surface in three-dimensions. The easiest way is using the smatplot3d command. All commands assume that surface being plotted is given in the form z = f(x, y). smartplot3d x 2 K y 2 ;

O O The smartplot3d command produced a plot of the surface under considration, but if more than the general idea of the surface is needed, the plot3d command is more appropriate. Look at the plots of the same surface obtained with the commands below. plot3d x 2 K y 2 , x = K 1 ..1, y = K 5 ..5 ; plot3d x 2 K y 2 , x = K 1 ..1, y = K 1 ..1 ;

O More features can be added to the plot by using more options in the command. Consider the following plots. plot3d x 2 K y 2 , x = K 2 ..2, y = K 2 ..2, axes = normal ;

O The above commands include what type of axes to use in the plot. Which type to use depends of what needs to be emphasized in the plot. If a particular orientation of the plot is needed, it can be typed as part of the command.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
