Hello Sam,
Welcome to PF and congratulations on nearly finishing your IB diploma. The numerical calculation package called Matlab is very widely used at universities and industry. It has powerful plotting capabilities, including 3D line plots, contour plots, and the 3D surface plots that I think you are after. The commands for these plots are plot3, contour, and mesh, respectivelyyou can google information about using them. In case your school does not have access to Matlab, I suggest talking to a sponsor or mentor at the closest university. I have heard that the free software Octave has similar commands and capabilities to Matlab, although I have never used it.

Hi Marcus,
I'm grateful for your response and thank you, but I still have a tough year ahead! I have stumbled across Matlab but as a solution it seemed slightly too complicated so I quickly looked past it. I am not aware that my school has access to Matlab but I have some contact to my local uni. I will try asking them if I was unsuccessful after attempting to use Octave, for now that seems like the more straightforward solution. Many thanks Marcus! Sam  To anybody else reading this, I'm still open to other suggestions!
