Just out of interest, did the students get confused between
polymorphism acheived through duck-typing and polymorphism acheived
through inheritence. Obviously not all OO languages have duck typing
and they are subtly different concepts which may confuse a learner.
Just a question, I'm not in education so I wouldn't know the best
way to perform structured education (my teacher friends remind me of
this all the time!!).
