Modification Options for Advancing Beginners – See asterisks in blue above
There are 4 TripleInPlace steps, each marked by an asterisk, which can be substituted with Shuffles instead:
In Sec. 3 where the TripleInPlace is marked with *, a RightSideShuffle (RLR) can be done instead.
In Sec. 3 where the TripleInPlace is marked with **, a LeftSideShuffle (LRL) can be done.
In Sec. 4 where the TripleInPlace is marked with ***, a ForwardShuffle( RLR) can be done.
In Sec. 4 where the TripleInPlace is marked with ****, a ForwardShuffle (LRL) can be done.

If still more shuffles are desired, in Sec. 1 you can substitute a Bkwd Shuffle(RLR) for the first Triple In Place and a Frwd Shuffle(LRL) for the second Triple In Place.

Please feel at liberty to substitute in-place triples with shuffles as you’d like for your students’ learning.
All these substitutions can help the student understand that a shuffle is just a sliding linear triple.
