    just for the record, this really should have been posted to the General Discussions board...
    Code:
    bool fun(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow(std::exp(1), std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
        * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1)*(1 << (value + 2))))
        .real() > 0;
    }

    MIT also does this on their website. Courses ranging from programming, engineering, physics... It's very nice.

    I wonder why the course chooses to use their own container classes, surely it would be more useful for the students to become familiar with the standard C++ ones??

    Do they show how to develop the container classes? I didn't watch enough to find out (maybe it's part of the exercise?)

    I think they are teaching the fundamentals of the containers rather than the use of them. Teaching the STL would be more along the lines of how to use a container as opposed to the underlying implementation.

    However a complete disregard for the STL even in higher level courses tells me that some students are wholly unprepared for the real world. I use the STL a lot at work because it reduces dev time and is efficient enough for my needs. It's obviously not the fastest thing in the world but it does get the job done and makes my life much easier.

    It's mentioned in that lecture that Stanford has a companion course to the one that lady teaches "if you really want to know C++". I imagine they work with the STL a lot in there, but since it's an elective, I couldn't estimate its popularity with the students.
