12.6 Cylinders and Quadric Surfaces
Cylinders and quadric surfaces are difficult to sketch by hand. Computer programs can generate
these graphs. We will primarily just look at the graphs so that you have an idea of the graph
associated with certain equations.
These three web sites are some that will render the quadric surfaces. You need to learn how to
