Title:

    Projects for a Computer Graphics Programming Course

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    One of the key points in creating an effective computer science course is developing the projects students will do in the course. This paper describes a set of projects for a computer graphics programming course, with a particular focus on projects whose content is in the area of visualization in the sciences.1 This focus serves a well-defined group of students whose needs have long been a concern to the SIGGRAPH community5 and can also make the course a key factor in a computational science program. The projects are intended to allow the course to be both an effective service course for science students and a sound introduction to computer graphics for computer science students.
