The “Overlap Principle”
Students will come to a second course with different backgrounds and levels of experience.  Instructors can repeat some material from the first course as they find appropriate, possibly in a slightly different setting.  For a class with strong backgrounds, instructors may choose to move more quickly through the first three chapters, treating that material mostly as review for students to get back up “to speed.” 
 
Flexibility Within and Between Units
The chapters and units are arranged to promote flexibility in the order and depth in which topics are covered.  Within a unit, some instructors may choose to “splice” in an additional topic when those ideas are first introduced.  Instructors can also adjust the order of topics between the units.
