[Hand out time-sheets for assignment #3] Section 10.6: Cylinders and quadric surfaces [Run demo of “Traces of a Surface”: the first two quadrics] Go back to x 2 + y 2 = 1 in 3D: What are all its traces? ..?. . Its horizontal traces are all circles. Its vertical traces are all … ..?. . pairs of vertical lines, single vertical lines, or empty. Use traces (and other kinds of mathematical reasoning) to describe the following surfaces: z = x 2 + y 2 + 1 z 2 = x 2 + y 2 z = sqrt(1 – x 2 y 2 ) Show page 747 of Instructor’s Guide

Unformatted text preview: Describe specified traces of the surface z = 4 x 2 + y 2 : Describe the vertical traces Describe the horizontal traces for z > 0. Describe the horizontal trace for z = 0. Describe the horizontal traces for z < 0. Compare the graphs of z = x 2 + y 2 and z 2 = x 2 + y 2 by using traces. Determine the surface z 2 = x 2 + y 2 1 by using traces.
