This intro presentation is played as students arrive. It's purpose is two-fold. (1) to help them set their intentions for what will be developed in detail later. It contains reminders every 15 slides of the major teaching/learning points. (only 2 examples included here to conserve space) (2) it encourages them to arrive early and be ready for class at the start time. This is the first session so it doesn't include a third component. Visual and written reminders of previous presentations.
