The contents of the course give understanding of the basic gaming and graphical tools, and attempt to provide students with a conceptual understanding of the mathematics needed to create games, as well as an understanding of how these mathematical bases actually apply to games and graphics that are essential in the operating environment of an ICT engineer, such as game development and graphical designing.
The students will team up for a project work and writing reports on some current and relevant aspect of game math. The teams then present their work to the whole group, which gives everyone an opportunity to understand the topic; all students will develop their mathematical proficiency. In this way, all students will have the opportunity to view themselves as powerful learners of game mathematics.
Task-based assessment supports learning and is continuous throughout the course. Studying in an international group develops students’ ability to intercultural communication and multicultural collaboration.
