Good thing I am not an instructor who has to worry about the mental interruptions of an uncoordinated student who cannot visualize right from wrong.
    It isn't about me, I'm the instructor who had to figure it out. It works for the students, Instructors seem to have a hard time accepting that the students do get it, I understand. It's very difficult at first to teach with out employing the word casting, but my students convinced me it is the shortest route to their understanding.
