I've been teaching the HC version of this course for ten years, and
have write-ups for those. I've been trying to find time for a year
now to rewrite them for Rev, but haven't gotten around to it. Maybe
by next quarter.....
The documentation I have is handout sheets for the students; I don't
use them very often, only if I have a sub or if a student wants to
forge ahead alone. I'm thinking of writing up a complete curriculum
so that a non-cs person could still teach the important concepts.
Not much help to you, eh? Maybe Judy's handouts would be useful.
