Sigmund's 2001 educational paper with a self-contained 99-line MATLAB code had far reaching impact to teaching and research of topology optimization. This brief note aims to close the gaps on self-contained content desirable for class room teaching. The goal is to add clarity to the theoretical foundation, and to enable students' learning of the complete iterative optimization solution with minimum additional effort.
