This unit focuses on the development of problem solving and critical thinking skills and understanding of mathematics and physics techniques used to model a range of processes and systems commonly found in computer games. Students are introduced to mathematical representations of common phenomena in virtual worlds, as well as the techniques to solve computational problems that arise in the design and development of games. The skills developed in this unit underpin studies in game AI, computer graphics and gameplay design, and facilitate a clear understanding of the software tools commonly used in game development, such as 3D modelling packages and game engines.


Tests (4 x 10% class test) 40%, mathematical modelling and analysis task 20%, examination 40%
