2. We are going to analyze the heck out of surface (d). First, you are going to take slices along the z-axis andsketch the level curves for various z-values.
(a)
First, write down the equation for the level curves for various z-values. Make sure you rewrite/rearrangethe equation so it looks like it is a standard conic form for easy graphing. Write down what the curve is
–
anellipse? hyperbola? Parabola? Circle? If there is nothing in the slice, explain why not!When z=-2, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:When z=-1, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:When z=0, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:

2
When z=1, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:When z=2, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:
(b)
Now graph what all the level curves would look like superimposed:Next to each level curve on the graph, write z=blah so we can tell the height of the curve.
(c)
Now see if your graph matches what WinPlot gives you for the level curves (remember the process? 3DGraph
Implicit
Level

Auto)… To see all the level curves superimposed, don’t forget to press “see all!”
Is your hand drawn graph a rough approximation of what you see in WinPlot?

Now we are going to take slices of this surface along the x-
axis…
When x=-2, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:When x=-1, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:When x=0, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:When x=1, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:When x=2, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:
(e)
Now we are going to take slices of this surface along the y-
axis…
When y=-2, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:When y=-1, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:When y=0, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:When y=1, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:When y=2, the graphical slice I am going to see is a _____________ and has this equation:
