Fundamental concepts of computer graphics. Topics include hardware
and software systems, scan conversion of graphics primitives, color and
color perception, modeling of curves and surfaces, clipping, antialiasing,
model-view and projection transformations, light and shading, and hidden
surface removal. Prerequisites: CS3460 (Data Structures) and MAT2240 (Linear Algebra). I strongly believe students need a C or better in Data Structures to do well in this course.
We will try to cover most of chapters 1 - 7, 9 and 10 in our text.
Graphics Systems and Models
Input and Interaction
Geometric Objects and Transformations
Object Oriented Modeling

Your grade will be determined by the following components:
Two exams, 15% each.
Final exam, 25%.
Quizzes and Class Attendance (usually unannounced), 10%.
Labs, 10% (50% attendance + 50% post lab)
Attendance is required; each unexcused
absence after the first three will lower your term average by 2 points.
All assignments are due at the start of class on the due date; a significant
fraction of the possible credit will be subtracted for late submissions,
and no late submissions will be accepted after the assignment solution
is discussed in class. Homework assignments and announcements will usually
be posted on our Web page; you are responsible for checking this page at
least once after each class.
In addition to the final exam, there will be 2 other exams in this course,
all cumulative. No make-up exams will be given in this course.
If you missed an exam due to an "Extreme circumstances" such as illnesses,
death of a relative, or problems of this nature, you have to present documents
(e.g. a letter from a doctor, a letter from a hospital, or an obituary
from the funeral). In such a case, your final exam's grade will be
used for the missed exam.
We'll have a mix of announced and unannounced quizzes throughout the
