Mathematics Workshop

The workshop, carried out in the faculty of mathematics of the Universitat de València, consists of two parts. The first part is dedicated to the introduction of the quadrics of revolution, some of which the students already know, such as the cone, sphere and cylinder. In the workshop, we will see the conical curves as sections of the cone and how we can construct the surface of revolution that they generate.

In the second part, attendees will have the opportunity to build some real models of the surfaces seen in the first part from some families of sections of these surfaces. Using templates and with paper and scissors, they will cut the sections and then reconstruct the surface from the sections.
