Student Asking Teacher Question

Student Outcomes

  • Through discovery, students will understand how challenging it is to project three-dimensional objects onto a two-dimensional space.
  • Students will understand that vanishing points can be used to project three-dimensional objects onto two-dimensional space.  They will demonstrate this process by showing how a cube is projected onto the two-dimensional surface of a screen.
  • Students will recognize that projecting three-dimensional images onto a two-dimensional surface can be accomplished by applying linear transformation matrices to the pre-image points.
