# 1.7 Game 2302-0120: visualizing column matrices

 Page 1 / 6
Learn how to display column matrices in a graphical format to make it easier to visualize them.

## Preface

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

What you have learned

In the previous module, you learned:

• How to compare column matrices for equality
• How to compare two points for equality
• How to compare two vectors for equality
• How to add one column matrix to another
• How to subtract one column matrix from another
• How to get a displacement vector from one point to another.

What you will learn

In this module, you will learn how to display column matrices in a graphical format. This may help you to get a better grasp of the nature of column matricesand the results of adding, subtracting, and comparing them.

## Viewing tip

I recommend that you open another copy of this module in a separate browser window and use the following links to easily find and view the Figuresand Listings while you are reading about them.

## Figures

• Figure 1 . Sample graphical program output.
• Figure 2 . Text output from the program.
• Figure 3 . Graphical output for equal vectors.
• Figure 4 . Text output for equal vectors.
• Figure 5 . Graphic output from Exercise 01.

## Listings

• Listing 1 . Beginning of the method named displayColumnMatrices.
• Listing 2 . Use the slider values to create the two matrices.
• Listing 3 . Add and subtract the matrices.
• Listing 4 . Display text information about the matrices.
• Listing 5 . Create mathematical points.
• Listing 6 . Create mathematical displacement vectors.
• Listing 7 . Produce a graphical representation of the displacement vectors.
• Listing 8 . Source code for the program named ColMatrixVis01.

## Preview

Abstract mathematical concepts are often easier to grasp if you can visualize them in graphical format. For example, the nature of the followingequation often becomes more apparent once you learn that it is the equation of a straight line.

y = m*x + b

Similarly, the nature of the following equation often becomes more apparent once you learn that it is the equation of a parabola and you learn the generalshape of a parabola.

y = x^2 + k

where x^2 indicates x raised to the second power.

As mentioned earlier, in this module, you will learn how to display column matrices in a graphical format. This may help you to get a better grasp of the nature of column matricesand the results of adding, subtracting, and comparing them.

I will present and explain an interactive program that behaves as follows:

Two column matrices are created using values obtained from the sliders shown at the bottom of Figure 1 . One matrix is named redMatrix and the other matrix is named greenMatrix .

Figure 1 Sample graphical program output.

Two additional column matrices are created by adding and subtracting the original matrices.The matrix created by adding the red and green matrices is named blueMatrix . The matrix created by subtracting the green matrix from the red matrix is named orangeMatrix .

what is the stm
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?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?
LITNING
scanning tunneling microscope
Sahil
how nano science is used for hydrophobicity
Santosh
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
what is Nano technology ?
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?
what king of growth are you checking .?
Renato
What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
Joe
anyone know any internet site where one can find nanotechnology papers?
research.net
kanaga
sciencedirect big data base
Ernesto
Introduction about quantum dots in nanotechnology
what does nano mean?
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
Bharti
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?
absolutely yes
Daniel
how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now
it is a goid question and i want to know the answer as well
Maciej
Abigail
for teaching engĺish at school how nano technology help us
Anassong
How can I make nanorobot?
Lily
Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
NANO
how can I make nanorobot?
Lily
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
