—Computer Graphics (CG) is a fundamental course to further study the related subjects such as computer animation, computer vision, computer games, and image processing. It is very difficult to shortly understand CG if students have no experience in theory of CG and basic mathematics. In consequent, we develop a simulator toolkit for teaching three-dimensional (3D) Graphics in order to assist students in understanding with 3D Graphics and using OpenGL. Moreover, this research focuses on using Object-Oriented environment to design and implement the simulator. From an assessment of students’ satisfaction and using the simulator, this simulator is rated in the range of good and excellent for all aspects.
