Mathematics questions deal with the arithmetic, geometry, calculus, formulae and other calculations used in the development of a game.

This tag is for questions about the math needed to produce some result in a game. These questions can involve complete formulae and algorithms, or they could just be about the math for a particular step in the process. Examples of mathematics questions include:

  • Create a formula for damage given different present variables
  • Determine the change in momentum for two objects after a collision
  • Find the largest parabolic distance for a projectile path
  • Produce specific beautiful, scintillating patterns of colorful bullet death

For questions specifically about using a complete algorithm to achieve a specific result, you can also use .
