Title:

    Boids: learning vector arithmetic through animation

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    Boids is an excellent example of emergent behaviour. Coding some simple rules creates complex behaviour. The assignment consolidates students’ learning of C++, OpenGL, GLM, and vector arithmetic. Students also learn about the careful balances that must be made to ensure that a simulation behaves in a realistic way.
