Lecture Assignment 16

Due at the start of class, Wednesday, April 7.

Please submit answers to these questions either as a hard copy (typeset or handwritten are OK) or by email to jteresco AT by the start of class. We will discuss these questions at the start of class, so no late submissions are accepted.

  1. Suppose you have defined the names a and b to refer to two points in space, and you wish to find the point that is one fourth of the way along the line from a to b. Show a blend function call that will compute this point's coordinates.
  2. What is returned by this Mead statement? (Try to figure it out before typing it into DrScheme - you'll need to be able to do this on an exam.)
    (morph 5 '(0 50 -100) '(100 -150 -100))
