learning math for c++/openframeworks

greetings all,

as the title suggests, im on the look out to learn math for c++/openframeworks. that may seem like a bit of a weird, or more so, vague question. but its been one on my mind to ask. so i thought i may as well sully the forums with the question.

i do have a very good book which im going to go through again. ‘mathematics for the non-mathematician’ by professor morris kline. good read. suggest you look at it. though i have forgotten most of it ;}
but was wanting to know whether there was anything that could help in terms of videos or even computer based math with c++.
books im all for, but sometimes you just need someone talking to you to then get what they are on about.

thanks

If you are want to learn animation techniques.
http://natureofcode.com/ by Daniel Shiffman is a great place to get started.

yeah ive been eyeing that up actually a few weeks ago, have it bookmarked.
also been talking about it with some colleagues.

thanks

Hi leed,

I’d also recommend Zach Lieberman’s algo2012 example files: https://github.com/ofZach/algo2012

They cover a lot of the basic principles as well and since they’re native openFrameworks you might can cross-reference with the Nature of Code stuff to get a handle on C++ and math at the same time.

oooh, thank you so much. will give that a good look-see.
looking forward to zachs oF book as well. already pre-ordered :wink:
