Main item 3 in the above list (this collection ) will serve as the major resource for classroom lectures.

Main item 1 ( Vector Math for 3D Computer Graphics ) and main item 2 ( physics sub-collection ) will serve as major homework study assignments.

Main items 4 and 5 (including sub-items 1 through 5) are provided for reference only.

The material in this collection (item 3) explains how to implement the concepts developed in the first two items in programming (Java) code. While this will serve as the major resource for classroom lectures, students areencouraged to bring questions about the other items to class for discussion.

Homework assignments

The first classroom session will be dedicated primarily to explaining the mechanics of the course, discussing the syllabus, etc.

Once those items have been taken care of, students will be asked to go online, access or download the Kjell tutorials, and begin studying Kjell's CHAPTER 0 -- Points and Lines and CHAPTER 1 -- Vectors, Points, and Column Matrices down through the topic titled Variables as Elements in Chapter 1 , in preparation for the next classroom session.

Students should also begin studying item 2 ( physics ) and should study onephysics module per week thereafter.

Finally, in addition to studying the Kjell material, students should read at least the next two modules in this collection and bring their questions about thatmaterial to the next classroom session.

What's next?

In the next module, we will begin the examination of sample programs and a game-programming math library intended to provide aspiring game programmers with the mathematical skills needed for game programming.


This section contains a variety of miscellaneous information.
