We see the questions come up over and over again on forums and around the web – What math should I study as a character TD? Here is our growing collection of great math examples, self guided learning and reference for artists in need of math help.

Collecting our links over the past year for all the good math for artists we have found. Here they are in a nice, easy to find place for everyone to use and share.

Enjoy!
