What Math did they use to Make this Game?

Vectors are used throughout this game. As you position the arrow (for direction) to make your shot, the length of the arrow indicates the magnitude of the vector and the direction the arrow is pointing is the direction of the vector. You can learn more in the vectors chapter.

There are acceleration and deceleration effects as the ball is acted on by gravity, it bounces and loses energy. See velocity and acceleration graphs.

The golf ball (and elephant) moves through the 2-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system.
