## What Math did they use to Make this Game?

There is extensive use of **vectors** in this game. As you pull the arrow back to make your shot, the length of the arrow indicates the **magnitude** of the vector. You can learn more in the vectors chapter.

There are **acceleration** and **deceleration** effects as the ball bounces and loses energy. See velocity and acceleration graphs.

As the ball moves and bounces off the wall and the ground, the path is worked out using trigonometry.
