Special learning concept

 Modularity: The algorithm was splitted into several small functions that can be understood independently. They are described with interface and implementation.
 Exploratory learning:Initially it is your task to find out the steps of the algorithm functions. To support you with this exploratory learning the courseware has interactive exercises (Java applets) with simulations.
