          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!!).
