This is my first Newgrounds submission, as well as the first flash animation I’ve made for any reason other than pure practice. It’s mostly frame-by-frame, though not all of it is. To my knowledge, and according to notes from Physics, all of my math is correct, however, if for some reason any of it is wrong, I’d appreciate a comment saying as much. Hopefully, those who haven’t taken calculus yet will at least find the random symbols and squiggly lines to be amusing, and the rockets will be merely an added bonus. I’d like to thank my AP Physics teacher, Mr. Brown, and my AP Calculus teacher, Mr. Kohler, for teaching me the math behind this piece, as well as my friend Sgt. Pancakes, for support and answering my technical questions. The song, in case you’re interested is VNV Nation’s “Genesis”. Enjoy, vote, and comment, please.

EDIT: I'd like to thank TheMarquisDuSarde for pointing out the misspelling in my title. I'd fix it, but, it's frame by frame, and I'm too lazy.

Whenever I watch this, I pretend I'm typing it all :D. Amazing!


Rated 1 / 5 stars

a bore

that flash was boring, if there was a point to it, then it was boring too. Mainly because it was math it sucked, but the chalk on chalkboard animation was kinda cool.

That was it?

I was expecting a bit more than a bunch of equations written on the screen with a single rocket taking off...I think explaining them a bit more with a couple of other animated examples would have helped.

All I learned is that about a 30 formulas have something to do with the launching of a rocket.

Aaa, what does it meean? I gave up trying to follow the lightspeed equations and ended up watching the pretty rocketship. Thanks for putting it in :)
