It's called 'staged learning'.

Staged learning is the only way for humans to learn, due to the 
limitations of the human cognitive system. Specifically, the way 
short-term memory and long-term memory facilitate learning.

Those who lack this understanding of how humans learn, tend to 
throw too much at novices.

Also, this apparent drive towards requiring novices to understand 
the implications of their code, in terms of optimising the 
assembly that gets produced, is just nonsense. They'll never get 
pass the for loop!
