The students will use a "real" 3D coordinate system. They will have 3 axes at right angles, and a plane (the XY plane) that will be able to slide up and down the Z axis. The students will then be given several coordinates and asked to find these points in space. They will also be asked to find the coordinates of the 8 corners of a box with given dimensions. Minimal prior experience graphing in two dimensions is helpful, but not necessary.
