Comparison and Boolean logic operators. Operators galore! Make if statements great again! Let the int dick measuring contests begin! Also, collision detection between rectangles, which is useful for stuff.

Concepts Taught

  • Comparison operators (>, <, ==, >=, <=, !=)
  • Boolean operators (&&, ||, !)
  • Using parentheses to change order of evaluation (effectively changing what an operator works on)
  • Collision (overlap) detection of rectangular regions (in the homework)
