The SDSS-IV MaNGA survey will eventually obtain integrated field unit data for ten thousand galaxies in the nearby universe; currently more than half of the data have already been collected. I will discuss how dynamical modeling of these galaxies can be used to study their properties, including their initial mass function variation, three-dimensional shapes and their systematic variations across the mass-size plane.
