Product Description
This lesson covers spheres and cylindrical surfaces for a Multivariable Calculus class. The equation of a circle is used to introduce the equation of a sphere. A review of "completing the square" is included to help students write the equation of a sphere in standard form. Students also get to practice drawing cylindrical surfaces in 3-space. Finally, inequalities help students develop additional intuition regarding spheres and cylindrical surfaces.

This lesson is meant for a Multivariable Calculus course, but it could be used in Geometry as part of a unit on three-dimensional geometry. No calculus is introduced in this lesson, although one of the homework problems is solved using calculus. Another option is to use it after AP Calculus exams have finished.

Detailed answer keys are included.

The topics covered include:
-The Equation of a Circle
-The Equation of a Sphere
-Writing the Standard Equation of a Sphere
-Practice with Finding the Equation of a Sphere
-Definition of a Cylindrical Surface
