1. Functional decomposition and logic

Students found it much easier to work with methods and parameters when doing programming exercises. Also, ASCII drawing exercises drew their attention. We should emphasize this in CS21A next semester.

Not that I'm too fond of focusing on structured programming, but they're no longer worrying about syntax _and_ they feel challenged and happy, so it can't be entirely a bad thing. They don't seem to mind working on toy problems, either.
