Preface

This module is the first in a series of modules designed for teaching GAME2302 Mathematical Applications for Game Development at Austin Community College in Austin, TX.

See the Download source code section to download source code files for the modules contained in this collection.

Course description

As of September 2012, the official course description reads: "Presents applications of mathematics and science in game and simulation programming. Includes the utilization of matrix and vector operations, kinematics, and Newtonian principles in games and simulations. Also covers code optimization."

Adherence to the course description

Online resources are provided to the student for each of the topics identified in the above description. The topics merge inthe final module of the collection, which explains an animated simulation of the first-person view of a human cannonball from the point in time that the humancannonball leaves the cannon until the human cannonball lands in the safety net, or fails to land in the safety net. The trajectory and the point of impact are determined by suchfactors as:

  • the acceleration of gravity,
  • the muzzle velocity, and
  • the elevation and azimuth of the aiming mechanism on the cannon.

Course resources

This course does not use a printed textbook. Instead, the primary resources for the course are:

  1. An interactive tutorial by Dr. Bradley P. Kjell titled Vector Math for 3D Computer Graphics . (You can view the tutorial online or you can download a copy of an older version of the tutorial in a zip file here . Extract the contents of the zip file and open the file named index.html in your browser to view the tutorial offline. Be aware, however, that some ofthe chapters in the zip file perform animation using Java applet code that may no longer be supported.) The tutorial is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License .
  2. A sub-collection of physics modules beginning with 2302-0300 Introduction to Physics Component published at cnx.org .
  3. This collection of modules published at cnx.org .
  4. Most of the programming examples in the course will be written in Java/OOP. Therefore, you may need some reference material on Java/OOPprogramming. The collection named Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) with Java at cnx.org contains the course material for three complete Java/OOP programming courses at Austin Community College.The section named ITSE 2321 Object-Oriented Programming (Java) contains the material for the first course. The section named ITSE2317 - Java Programming (Intermediate) contains the material for the second course. The section named INEW 2338 - Advanced Java (Web) contains the material for the third course.
  5. Here are some additional Java/OOP references that you may find useful:
    1. Java Platform Standard Edition 7 Documentation
    2. Java Platform, Standard Edition 7 API Specification
    3. Reading the Javadoc - how to read the API
    4. The Java Tutorials
    5. Simplified Java tutorial

nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
Ali
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
Maira Reply
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..

ya I also want to know the raman spectra
Bhagvanji
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
Crow Reply
what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

what is the stm
Brian Reply
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?

Do u think that Graphene and Fullrene fiber can be used to make Air Plane body structure the lightest and strongest. Rafiq
Rafiq
what is differents between GO and RGO?
Mahi
what is simplest way to understand the applications of nano robots used to detect the cancer affected cell of human body.? How this robot is carried to required site of body cell.? what will be the carrier material and how can be detected that correct delivery of drug is done Rafiq
Rafiq
if virus is killing to make ARTIFICIAL DNA OF GRAPHENE FOR KILLED THE VIRUS .THIS IS OUR ASSUMPTION
Anam
analytical skills graphene is prepared to kill any type viruses .
Anam
Any one who tell me about Preparation and application of Nanomaterial for drug Delivery

what is Nano technology ?
Bob Reply
write examples of Nano molecule?
Bob
The nanotechnology is as new science, to scale nanometric
brayan
nanotechnology is the study, desing, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials and functional systems through control of matter at nanoscale
Damian
Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
Damian Reply
what king of growth are you checking .?
