I wish to implement a 3D software renderer, so I started to read "Tricks of the 3D Game Programming Gurus Advanced 3D Graphics and Rasterization".
The first chapters are pretty straight forward, but my problem is that when he started with the math (Chp 4) I lost direction - he throws a lot of material (and I really bad with math), and there are no exercises which I can work on.
In exercises I mean writing some code, so I could see how each separate subject fits the whole image - for example, some exercises about polar coord's, other in vectors and so on...
From simple math books, I don't understand a thing - writing code using a feature will make it more clear and understandable to me.
Is there is a website or a book which gives such exercises, or even suggestion to other book on the subject?
Thank you very much.
