Course Prerequisites:

CS249 or approval of instructor.

Course Description:

In t
his course we will explore fundamental topics related to computer graphics. Specifically we will explore
algorithms and geometric models for two and three dimensional objects and surfaces including geometric
transformations, subdivision surfaces, implicit
surfaces, fractals, particle systems, ray tracing and real time
rendering techniques.

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, students should:



Be familiar with basic 2D rendering concepts and algorithms.



Understand 3D rendering techniques incl
uding geometric transformations and projections.



Understand the basics of color models and basic lighting and shading techniques.



Be familiar with basic aspects of geometric and solid modeling.



Be able to write applications using OpenGL.

Course Structure and Evaluation Method:

Participation and Quizzes (5% of your final grade):

In class participation is
expected
. Students
will be expected to attend class and work through prob
lems and material in class. Quizzes will also
be used to measure your comprehension of a particular topic. Quizzes are graded and returned.

Homework Projects (25% of your final grade):
Homework problems and programming projects
will be given on a regular
basis. Homework is graded and returned. Homework projects should be
an
individual

effort.


Final Project (25%):

Through out the semester you will be working on a final project. This project
is of your own choosing but must be approved by the instructor. Th
is project should extend and
expound on concepts learned in class and provide a platform for your own creativity and interests.
The final project is not a "group" project but you
may

collaborate and share ideas and code with
classmates.

Exams (45% of your

final grade):

There will be one midterm exam worth 20% of your grade
during the semester and one final
comprehensive

exam worth 25% of your grade.

Grading Scale:

A >= 90, B >= 80, C >= 70, D >= 60, F < 60.

Course Policies:



Attendance:

Attendance is requi
red. You are responsible for all material covered during the lectures
whether you attend or not. If you must miss a class, be sure to get the notes from another student. After
reviewing their notes and doing the assigned reading, let me know if you have
sp
ecific

questions. Late
arrivals are disruptive
-

plan to arrive five minutes before the start of class.



Office Hours:

Feel free to come to my office during office hours to discuss problems or "talk shop"
about almost anything else. Email me or see me afte
r class if you need to schedule an appointment
outside my office hours.



Late work:

No late work will be accepted. Unless otherwise noted, all assigned work is due
at the
beginning of class on the date they are due!



Make
-
ups:

No make
-
ups are given for qui
zzes or homework.
Make
-
up exams will be given only in
the case of a documented emergency or with approval from me at least 24 hours
prior

to the exam.

Make
-
up exams are usually more difficult than the original exam
.




Academic Dishonesty:

Cheating will not
be tolerated and will result in immediate failure in the course.
Serious incidents of academic dishonesty will also be brought to the attention of the university and may
result in expulsion. All quizzes, exams and homework assignments are meant to be indiv
idual efforts by
the person receiving the grade. Any variation from this is considered cheating and all parties involved
(giving or receiving) will be sanctioned severely.
