Analytic geometry 2

The applets are started by clicking the red buttons.

In the applet Planes in 3-space the equations describing five planes given in a dynamical 3D diagram shall be found. Since no numerical information is provided, all ingredients necessary to determine the position of the planes must be found by the user. This may help linking geometrical imagination with algebraic procedures and dealing with spatial relations in a creative way. In case you have difficulties to imagine the position of the planes shown with respect to the coordinate system, consult Spatial coordinates, which provides an introduction into this kind of dynamical 3D diagram. The applet is started from the red button in its own window.
