Nice. Thanks for the info, but the symbolic notation is not the only 
reason for using Haskell, it's also to force them into solving simple 
problems without using mutable variables, so they see this alternative 
functional programming approach BEFORE they are specialist in C++, 
because then they will be in the blob zone ;-) Maybe APL is also a 
functional language, but unfortunately I don't have the time to switch 
to another language anymore. Besides, I'm addicted to Haskell now ;-)
