CSE 457 Introduction to Computer Graphics

Lecture Notes and Applets

Here are online copies of the slides used in lectures. Please avoid printing them out! We always make enough printed copies for the whole class; if you missed one, there are probably extra copies in the filing cabinet in the graphics instructional lab. Look there first rather than wasting paper. Note also that Acrobat files are eminently readable online.

If you must print out a section of slides, try to print double-sided. Under UNIX, this typically involves adding an option like "-ZDuplex=DuplexNoTumble" to your lpr command. Under Windows, it's an option in the "advanced" tab of the print properties dialog. For the option "print on both sides", select "Long Side".

Thanks for saving paper!

Each lecture is provided in PDF format. In addition, the "extras" column contains links to relevant web pages and applets.
