We present techniques for constructing families of compact, monotone (including exact) Lagrangians in certain affine varieties, starting with Brieskorn-Pham hypersurfaces. We will focus on dimensions 2 and 3. In particular, we'll explain how to set up well-defined counts of holomorphic annuli for a range of these families. Time allowing, we will give a number of applications.
