In this work is sought to support and to describe a proposal on the <<learning environment>> that is created when a C.A.S tool is utilized, in this case the Scilab, in the teaching of the relation between the equation of a surface and its representation in the space. The computer is used as a learning tool. Surfaces have elected whose study has arisen from the computational representation: the superquadric and the supertorus. A general form to obtaining the graphics is proposed, the one that from the parametric equations of the quadrics makes possible the obtaining of a great variety of surfaces families. This is especially interesting as methodology that stimulates the free creative play of the student, the exploration of potential properties and the consolidation of the knowledge of the quadrics.
