Example text

A transformation can be scaling, rotating, and moving, or all at once. If you apply a transformation to one object, this transformation will also apply to all its children. This is how we displayed a point at (0,0) that was in the center of the screen. Note We could also draw the circle at the position, but because the (0,0) coordinates of the circle sprite are at the top-left corner, this would not place the point in the center of the shape. This will complicate any transformation on the shape as we'll see later on.

This is linear interpolation and if it's done right, it's hardly distinguishable from the real thing. There's more... If function drawing is the main aim of your program, there are quite a few ways this code can be extended and improved. Improving the Graph class Until now, our two graph methods (drawPoint and drawLine) have taken number arguments. A better interface would probably have point classes as arguments. Why not try this refactoring yourself? It will give you more insight into the code.
