# How to calculate the Gaussian curvature of a graph of a function

Consider the surface $\{(x,y,F(x,y))\}$ where $F:\mathbb{R^2} \to \mathbb{R}$ is smooth. How would would evaluate the Gaussian curvature at the general point $(x,y,F(x,y))$? I've tried writing out the first fundamental form and using the Brioschi formula, but the algebra is quickly becoming untenable, is there any easier way?
