but all of this is new to me
its a bit more difficult than making an LED blink
While you still use variables it is best to use a special type of variable called an array. http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArrayThis is a variable you can store many different values in.There are many ways of doing this and perhaps the best way is a two dimensional array, but to start with you should just use a one dimensional array and have one array variable for each of the pots.
If he knows its always going to be just three values, three separate variables would do nicely.

well can you tell me about the STL too?
