Excellent question. The recently published textbook has some handy "lists of common things" on the inside of the front and back covers, but you're looking for more.

There is a four-color, tri-fold, six-sided laminated "course card" available:

Or, if you prefer,

I believe Chuck Herbert of the Community College of Philadelphia created this, and he's allegedly been contracted to produce an Alice manual that I believe would be targetted at community college students.

You're also looking for documentation on *concepts* like "orientation", and how the PointOfView vectors can be manipulated; unfortunately, I don't know of good things for topics like that, other than the textbook which does cover many of them, often in "tips and techniques" sections.

Hope this helps!
