Listing 16 . Source code for the game-programming math library named GM2D01.

/*GM2D01.java Copyright 2008, R.G.BaldwinThe name GM2D01 is an abbreviation for GameMath2D01. This is a game-math class, which will be expanded overtime. The class is provided solely for educational purposes. No effort has been expended to optimize it inany way. Rather, it was designed and implemented for maximum clarity in order to help students understandthe programming details of various mathematical operations commonly used in game programming.Each time the class is expanded or modified, it will be given a new name by incrementing the two digits at theend of the name. No attempt will be made to maintain backward compatibility from one version of the class tothe next. This class contains a number of static top-level classes.This organizational approach was used primarily for the purpose of gathering such classes under a single namingumbrella while avoiding name conflicts within a single package. For example, as time passes, and this library isexpanded, my default package may contain class files with the following names:GM2D01$Point.class GM2D02$Point.classGM2D03$Point.class All real-number values used in this class are maintainedas type double.

Exercise 1

Without using the game math library, use the programming environment of your choice to write a program that drawsa diagonal line from the upper-left to the lower-right corner of a window as shown in Figure 7 .

Figure 7 Graphic output from Exercise 1.

Missing image.

Exercise 2

Using Java and the game math library named GM2D01 , write a program that:

  • Creates a new GM2D01.Point object with coordinate values of 3.4 and 9.7.
  • Uses the overridden toString method to get and display the location of the point in 2D space in the format shown by the first lineof text in Figure 8 .
  • Uses the getData method to get and display the location of the point in 2D space in the format shown by the last two lines of text in Figure 8 .

Your screen output should display numeric values in the format shown in Figure 8 where each ? character represents a single digit.

Figure 8 . Text output from Exercise 2.
?.?,?.? ?.??.?

Exercise 3

Using Java and the game math library named GM2D01 , write a program that:

  • Represents a line segment using a GM2D01.Line object with the ends of the line segment being located at the followingcoordinates:
    • x=2.2, y=5.3
    • x=5.2, y=9.3
  • Displays the information shown in Figure 9 to describe the line segment.

Your screen output should display numeric values in the format shown in Figure 9 where each ? character represents a single digit. (Note that the number of digits to the right of the decimal point in the last line of text may be greateror less than that shown in Figure 9 .)

encoding is the last step in memory stracture
echoic memory reflect humans visual system
getting the information back from stored area of brain is called retrieval
no , echoic memory reflect upon things you hear , that's Iconic memory which deals with visual information
I'll be studying psychology soon. Where do I start?
Jane Reply
I would start by learning basic terminology and definitions cause there's a lot of it and learning the different concepts behind psychology and there meanings and there use then go onto introduction into psychology
why is psychology a science?
Godslove Reply
it's a social science
what we define as science is a systematic arrangement of knowledge based on experimental and observational data.so psychology is a science. as for what kind of science it is depends on how and what information are you using in your approach towards understanding the said data and to what conclusion.
depending on your approach and understanding Psychology can classify as medical or social science like anthropology

What are factors that influence learning?
Enos Reply
Environment Heredity(I am not sure about heredity)
Helpful. .. thanks
Sure, anytime
I have other questions also
Based on the factors affecting learning, how do we improve learning
I think that addressing that everyone learns in their own time
Peer group influence can also be another reason
Also knowing what's going on at home. what pressure are the parents putting on them.
am I close or no
also is there a lack of care? going one more step. with peer groups do an activity that shows how much they have in common
I think one's society has a big role to play in determining what/when & how he/she learns.
multiple reasons at different stages. at the earliest stages of development in a child is behaviour of people around. A baby starts learning basic social expressions and actions by mimicking the people around it. further social and cultural practices enforces learning and behaviour
from need to nutrition everything affect development and learning when choosing on a single factor of influence it is necessary to keep these other factors in the mind as environment around people is very plastic and flexible and there are many variables playing active role
social interaction is surely a big influence hence can be used to improve learning.
to encourage learning it is important to establish curiosity and notion of possibility for more perspectives habit of questioning possibilities and cause and effect in a great way to encourage learning in my opinion. language is another important factor
