This video has two homework assignments, both of which are related to vector math:

  1. There is something "wrong" with the movement of the Dude in the Poo Game. Chili wants you to figure out what it is and how to fix it.
  2. Overhaul the Poo Game so that it is controlled with the mouse instead of the arrow keys. When the left mouse button is down in the window, the Dude should move towards the position of the mouse pointer.

For information on using the Mouse class to get mouse input, see this page: Mouse (Chili Framework).

The solution to this homework can be found in this video.
