Points to Grobstein

I like the addition you’ve made, at least in comparison to what I remember after taking your Bio 103 last year, to your lecture on the Ant model. Taking your course and experiencing this part of the presentation once before, I definitely did not remember anything else besides the visualizations (and, unconsciously, its implications) of randomness becoming order. I would like to encourage you Grobstein to continue and to further emphasize the students’ (and the teacher’s) hypothetical situations like stories and metaphors that can apply to, in this case, the reason why the ant is traveling aimlessly throughout the discussion because it functions well for student learning.
