That's certainly good reasoning that I hadn't thought of. Makes a bit
more sense as to why I see it used like this so often. And it certainly
does make sense to not get bogged down in every different detail when
beginning so I see why one would teach this way. In fact I feel like it
could have been a good idea in the different times I've taught people
this sort of thing...

Thanks for the perspective!
