## 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.
