Course FAQ

What is the CRN Number for this course? 43902
Is ECS 175 required for this course? Officially, yes. The knowledge required from the computer graphics course is fundamental to the understanding of the geometric modeling area. However, talk to the instructor if you are unsure.
Will we use OpenGL? Yes.
Can we form teams to complete the course assignments? No. The students will each be required to complete the assignments and projects in the course. However, I do insist that you work together to solve the problems (for example, help each other debug code), but what you turn in must be your own work.
