The purpose of this unit is for students to develop problem solving, critical thinking skills, and mathematics and physics knowledge and skills for relevant to the development of computer games. Students are required to create mathematical representations of common phenomena in virtual worlds and apply these models to solve computational problems that arise in the design and development of games. Students will study mathematics and physics concepts, techniques, patterns and models that are used commonly in computer game development as well as other computing applications.


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