    Brian,
    Teaching Cel Nav as a part of your Math class is an interesting idea.
    If you have an access to the journal American Mathematical Monthly
    (an MAA pubication); it has several papers, published in 1940-s
    on this subject, and I think these papers are good for your purpose
    (as almost everything the journal publishes).
    
    
    Alex.

    CN and only a basic knowledge of the practice.   I would love to get some 
    more information on class offerings or instruction for myself as I have only 
    taught myself what little I do know.
