Working with the Third Dimension (04:50)


In three dimensional coordinate space, points are plotted by moving a distance along the x-axis, y-axis, and z-axis, respectively.

Plotting Points in Three-Dimensional Coordinate System (03:43)

To plot points in a three-dimensional coordinate system, locate x on the x-axis, move parallel to the y-axis, move y units, move parallel to the z-axis, then move z units and that will be your point.

Illustrate Where the Point is on the Coordinate System (02:12)

To plot points in three-dimensional coordinate space, first graph the points in two dimensions as you would in a standard coordinate plane. Then, use the third dimension to visualize the points in relation to your coordinate axes.
