    Re: Teaching a Running Fix

    I share your challenge teaching a varied audience.
    
    I teach advancing a fix to a dr first (most 'get' this immediately
    from prior work), then advancing the lop components of the fix to the
    dr (wow -- its the same!) then show how one can advance a single lop
    to cross a newer one for an rfix. seems to work for most people. doing
    the actual plotting by hand in the class seems to make the penny drop,
    doing and showing are too different for just showing to work for most
    people.

    for the last 20 years.
