I’m sure most designers would look at you cross-eyed if you told them to enter a radian value to rotate the text for the logo they are creating. When working with HTML, programmers must straddle the line between design and development, and JavaScript, like most programming languages, uses radians. Because you’ll likely be working with both, you need to know how to convert degrees to radians and back again. PI As you go through this book, you run into a lot of formulas. Here and there, I'll point out a formula as one that you should memorize—burn these into the backs of your eyelids.

This is an important point. Here is the sequence of actions you must take on each frame to animate: 18 1. Execute all the code that needs to be called for that frame. 2.
