Lab 11: Instructor's Notes

This lab exercise deals with multidimensional arrays (or if your prefer, multidimensional vectors). It uses them to model a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Conway in 1970 and known as "The Game of Life."

Lab 10 dealt with one-dimensional arrays and vectors in considerable detail. Having another lab exercise about them — albeit multidimensional ones — may seem like a case of overkill. You may wish to omit this lab in order to have time for other important topics such as building classes, linked lists, stacks and queues.
