Fast 3d Plots - HP F2226A - 48GII Graphic Calculator User Manual

Graphing calculator.

If you could reproduce the slope field plot in paper, you can trace by hand
lines that are tangent to the line segments shown in the plot. This lines
constitute lines of y(x,y) = constant, for the solution of y' = f(x,y). Thus, slope
fields are useful tools for visualizing particularly difficult equations to solve.
Try also a slope field plot for the function y' = f(x,y) = - (y/x)

Fast 3D plots

Fast 3D plots are used to visualize three-dimensional surfaces represented by
equations of the form z = f(x,y). For example, if you want to visualize z =
