Overview

This course will introduce students to the mathematical and programatical foundations of modeling, rendering (drawing), and animating three-dimensional scenes. Topics include digital image representation, two- and three-dimensional primitives, geometrical transformations, curves and surfaces, light, visual perception, visible surface determination, illumination and shading models, and ray tracing. Coursework will consist of short programming assignments (in C++ and Javascript/WebGL), in-class quizzes, assigned readings, and a final project.

Prerequisites

  • CS 50
  • MATH 22 or 24
  • or instructor's permission

Students will need to be comfortable with concepts from calculus, linear algebra, algorithms and data structures.

Coursework

The programming assignments will be in C++ and Javascript, which should be relatively easy to pick up for students already familiar with C and Java.
