INSTRUCTOR'S COMMENT: The grader and I decided to publish James Reese's
paper too. Neither is perfect, and they are somewhat complementary.
There seems to be some confusion about where tangent and normal vectors
are plotted. They should be drawn with THE POINT CONCERNED as the origin,
not at the original origin of the cartesian coordinate system. (Think of
them as representing velocities, forces, etc., acting on a particle at
that point.)
