Assignments

    • Watch and follow Lessons 7-9 of Maya 101 on YouTube. This will make most sense if you’ve gone through Lessons 1-6.
  • Conceptual Stuff:
    • Take a look at the Digital Universe by the American Museum of Natural History. We will work with this data next week.
    • If you haven’t already, read a subsection of Chapter 2 in Designing Virtual Worlds. What was most interesting in this reading? Did you come away with questions? Are there passages you disagree with?
