The code for Graphs.scad
Overview and Background
Reason for Creation
I created this program for an honor's research seminar that I am working on. The purpose of this project is to determine whether or not using 3D printed graphs are helpful for Calculus III students to visualize 3D planes and surfaces, thus increasing their understanding of those functions. I believe that these models would be extremely useful for kinesthetic learners since it provides them with a manipulative for them to pick up and analyze.
Lesson Plan and Activity
These graphs can be used however the teacher sees fit throughout the course of his or her class. These models would be most effective as a visualization tool to supplement a lesson on 3D functions and what they look like.
Either a 3D printer or access to a 3D printing service.
