functions, added modules, removed topics, etc.

Instructors should use
this example to
complete module
specific delivery
notes.

Key Delivery Notes

Use a demo to show new functionality versus


slide lecture only. Ask Qs during demo to
confirm learning. Slide lecture is very short
to accommodate demo and Q&A.
Exercise 1, steps 2-4 need clarified.
Students may get lost without a quick demo,
or student mentoring during lab, or both.
