Matrix of Modules

Hyperscripts of AMAT:
General Information

Index
 
This matrix contains all modules (i.e. HTML files) of the Hyperscript. Incomplete modules will be finished and more modules will be added in due time. There are three main levels for organizing the modules:
Basics
Contains some reference information and on occasion longer texts on background knowledge that you should be familiar with.
Learning (main part)
Contains everything that you should know after taking the course.
Advanced
Supplies knowledge beyond the scope of the course that is of some interest. Includes, on occasion, also elaborations about historical, strange or funny stuff relating to topics of the course.
The main part ("learning") is further subdivided in 4 (vertical) columns and the (horizontal) chapters and sub-chapters which define the matrix. The columns "backbone I" and "backbone II" constitute the hard core of the Hyperscript; the columns "illustrations" and "exercises" intend to help in understanding and to practical applications of what has been learned.
The cells of the matrix contain all the modules, identified by their filename. The first letter of a filename has a specific meaning not important in this context. The numbers have the following meaning:
1. number = chapter
2. number = subchapter
3. number = running integer
 
Color coding of entries
Blue: Finished to a large degree
Red: Unfinished to a large degree
Dark green: Contains JAVA or animation
Light green: "Multiple Choice" Exercises
Purple: Required reading Module.
Pink: Summaries
