Another schedule update

Please note that I’ve updated the Course Outline again.

For those of you wondering why I’ve been making changes to the schedule, I’ve taught the course two different ways in the past:

  1. As a lab course with weekly assignments
  2. As a lecture course with 4 or 5 larger programming assignments

In courses of type (1), we cover the basic techniques of 3D graphics and you get a lot of experience implementing them. In courses of type (2) we talk about a broader range of topics, but for most of them you never get a chance to see the code.

I’d originally planned to teach this semester as a lecture course, but when it was scheduled for a single class meeting on Friday nights a couple of things became clear:

  1. The building would be nearly empty, and we could have our pick of labs
  2. In a lecture course, everyone would be asleep by 8:45

So I’m adjusting the outline as we go along. I think we’re on track for the rest of the semester, but don’t be surprised if there’s at least one more change before the end.
