Catalog Description: 

This is an introductory course on Computer Graphics with no prerequisites. Computer Graphics deals with the synthesis of images from geometric models and textures; which may be acquired form the real world or may be synthetically generated as well. The course will focus on modeling; which is the geometric description of 3D scenes; and rendering, which creates realistic images from such models.  An important component of the course is the use of mathematics. The course uses linear algebra, and other areas of math. We will review mathematical basics used in the course.
