You should expect to have at least two supervisions. I provide two sets of exercises which your supervisor may well choose to use.
- Exercise set 1 for the first supervision, covering material up to and including splines.
- Exercise set 2 for the second supervision, covering material from subdivision to radiosity (inclusive).

- The subdivision.org
website which compliments the book "Subdivision Methods For Geometric
Design: A Constructive Approach" by Joe Warren and Henrik Weimer. It
has a short tutorial on subdivision and Java applets illustrating both
curve and surface subdivision.
