Animation is all about things that move... And code is all about numbers. In this class we'll understand the principles that govern the motion of real world objects and how they can be simulated through code. We'll use Physics and Mathematics to make thousands of particles move in different ways... And learn what happens when we apply gravity, attraction/repulsion, waves and other effects. Expect to learn a little about C++, Newton and Trigonometry.
