I spent about five minutes browsing this software. The content represented by
the material was very significant. This software could be very helpful to
students having trouble picturing how a 3D graph might look like.

Technical Remarks:

I had very little trouble getting the software to do what I wanted in the small
amount of time I spent with it.
