A hands-on approach to learn math
The technology you learn today might become obsolete tomorrow. Hence, it is important to learn principles instead of just a certain programming language.
The principles we teach in Creative Coding are the timeless mathematics that made computer graphics possible.
[Student project] See how we create a mathematically animated flag to celebrate the national day:
Students nowadays are already mesmerized by the stunning visuals in their games or on their screens. Teaching computer graphics is a great way to motivate them to develop a deeper passion for the math.
We do not teach built-in commands where students simply type something like "circle" and a circle magically appears on the screen. Instead, we teach students how to write mathematical functions to program the colour of the every pixel on the screen.
Such programs are called shaders and they run on the GPU (graphics card).
We go beyond rote memorization and encourage students to truly understand what they are learning. The process of visualizing mathematical concepts through computer graphics brings abstract ideas to life and makes them more memorable and relatable.
