In this study, Stepan Paul and Monica Mendoza aim to construct a model for the processes by which students in a multivariable calculus class conceptualize unfamiliar solid regions in three dimensions. We designed and recorded student work from several tasks in which students must decode a description of a solid figure and answer questions assessing the strength of their conception of the figure. We will share findings from the analysis of interviews and group work on one of these tasks, in which students must decide which of two 3D printed solids corresponds to a given set of inequalities.
