VG:Applied Mathematics for Games Main Page
You don't need to understand matrices to calculate a tip or trigonometry to balance your checkbook. But did you know that even the simplest video games and computer simulations rely on these and other advanced mathematics concepts to function properly? Applied Mathematics for Games combines a rigorous exploration of a range mathematics topics with computer science curriculum and hands-on projects that let you apply what you've learned directly to the game development process. By the time you complete this workshop, you will have a deeper understanding of the mathematics concepts at the heart of modern video games.
- Master math concepts: Learn about 2D and 3D coordinate systems, linear and circular equations, vectors, matrices, and trigonometry.
- Put your knowledge into practice: Apply the mathematics you've learned in playable video game projects that you program using HLPL (High Level Programming Language).
- Connect the dots: Learn first-hand the critical role math plays in the game development process. You’ll never look at video games the same way again.
