There will also be reading and writing homework assignments, to encourage us to think carefully about the design aspects of our projects and reinforce mathematical ideas. In addition to lectures on the technical and mathematical aspects of computer visualization, we will have in-class discussions of design issues, centered around the projects. The overall goal will be to inculcate habits of excellence.
