This page will show upcoming workshops for the CalcPlot3D project and links to participant hub pages.

Upcoming Workshops:


July 22 – 25, 2024:  MAA OPEN Math Online Workshop: Engaging Multivariable Calculus Students using CalcPlot3D and 3D-Printed Surfaces
(11:00 am – 5:00 pm ET each day, with breaks)

This workshop will get you up and running using the visualization app CalcPlot3D and 3D-printed surfaces in your teaching and in hands-one student learning activities.  And this extensive workshop is a great deal!  It has a very small cost ($75), and it’s offered online, so it’s very easy to get to.
