The interpretations of mathematical calculations are often based on traditional methods of using pens and papers to visualize graphical , views. These methods are further enhanced by using a visualization program to help students to achieve better understanding through visual interpretations. Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) is the tool that is used in this project to assist in the study of objects' characteristics, as well as provide a platform that resembles the Cartesian coordinates. Transformations such as translation, rotation and scaling are implemented in this project to provide different viewpoint of objects and their behavior under such changes. The fundamentals of this project are based on the manipulation of different objects that shares certain similarities and uses such changes to better explain these similarities. The emergence of technologies such as immersive virtual reality (IVR) provides students with the ability to interact with graphic objects defined in the virtual world Implementation of this project revolves around line and vectors in space, surfaces areas and application of integrals. All of these depend heavily on graphical view to explain how their equations behave in 3D space.
