We're allegedly teaching the same subject to the same sorts of users. The experiences equate very well. Or ought to.

But anyway... so, according to you, people who see first one then the other demo don't get confused. But your earlier post didn't show first one then the other demo, just the first one. So perhaps this explains why your post here was confusing. You cannot cut your demos in two and only give the residual half to the outside world and expect the lack of confusion you claim for your students to still apply.

Actually, yes: analytic functions and regular expressions are extremely complex. Well, OK: analytic functions are defintely and conceptually subtle and complex. Regular expressions are just complex syntax which can be learnt by brute force. But anyway: where complexity is intrinsic to the subject, it of course needs to be tackled. Introducing it where it isn't, however, is just plain silly.

Too few system rollback segments up there, maybe?

Maybe not. It was a long time ago and something I expect you'd rather forget. Too few cucumbers at the picnic, I'd have said, for sure, though.

You don't need to reply defending your teaching techniques, either. The question was not about what you do in your university classes but what you do -did- here, in a public forum. The evidence is out there. People can make their own minds up. Your particular brand of selfjustification  is just redundant in that context. Received on Thu Nov 08 2007 - 23:26:36 CST
