The course is designed so that approximately only 5% is memorization. Although flexibility is embedded so that it can be up to 10%.

Its based on recurrent 2 to 4 mini-exercises in class which culminate in practical projects in weeks 9 through 15. This turns tears down the walls of the classroom–and turns it into an exercise in real world experimentation and project based learning.
