CS209-Ind: Computer Graphics: Building Pictures Using Computers


Course Description

This is a group independent study to learn the material from the cs209 course not being taught this year. CS200's course description is: Images created by computer graphics are everywhere and there are many different programs for creating them, but how do these programs work? In this course we will explore these issues by programming our own computer graphics modeling and rendering system. Projects will be used to build a global graphics system and as each concept is added, it will be possible to generate more complex images. This course will enable students to create computer graphics images while learning the underlying concepts. Object-oriented programming paradigms and good general programming techniques will be covered. Prerequisite: At least one semester of college- level programming in a high-level programming language, e.g., C, C++, or Java. This course satisfies Division I distribution requirements. PRJ

Evaluation

Course evaluation will be based on in class work and homework assignments given throughout the semester. There will be roughly 11 assignments given this semester. To receive an evaluation you must earn 9 points over the course of the semester. For every assignment turned in on time you receive a point. For every assignment turned in a day early you received 2 points and for every assignment not turned in you lose 2 points. As with all Hampshire College courses academic honesty is expected, make sure your are familiar with the Hampshire's official statement on plagiarism.
