# MfA Workshop — Surfaces in Space

I’m looking forward to a a workshop I’ll be running tonight at the Math for America offices on three-dimensional coordinate geometry.

This workshop will cover the basic algebraic and geometric techniques for analyzing functions and relations in *x, y, *and *z*, as well as some simple methods for building interesting surfaces in space.

Sketching in space is a favorite topic of mine, and I’m really excited to share it with a group of MfA teachers. Three-dimensional coordinate geometry is an accessible, fun, and rich area that few math teachers have experience with. But given the advances in graphing technology and the applications to 3D printing, it’s something that more people can, and should, learn about!

Is it possible to see this workshop?

There’s no video available, if that’s what you’re asking.
