Let be a parametrization of the graph T_h of Find the first fundamental form for and also compute the second fundamental form. For the first fundamental form, I got that and Then and How can I complete this?

I advice that in your final answers, you use instead of \ and insted of as these were the variables given. So you've computed the first fundamental form; To get the second fundamental form, you of course need the Gauss map of the graph. where Using the formula and the rest is no stress.
