    Try ContourPlot, Plot3D, etc. Mathematica has plenty of built in documentation.

    I don't think this is the proper forum for this sort of question.

    Code (Text):
    Plot3D[x^2 - y^2, {x, -5, 5}, {y, -5, 5}, AxesLabel -> {x, y, z}]
    works for me.

    Look up Plot3D in the help, it gives examples on how to use the function. Sometimes you need to import graphics packages before you can use certain functions in there. I don't think Plot3D needs and packages but implicit functions might. I has been a while since I have used Mma.
