Two questions:

1. For the second figure, what determined the order in the chart? The lower program was used most frequently or some other reason?

2. Your course sounds fantastic! Do you ever envision an online version? Good luck as you get started!


Hi Candace, For this version, I used the order in which the student listed the different tools, which I assume is roughly correlated with importance. In the future, I will make it explicit and ask students to list the tools in order of importance.
Will be thinking about the online version. I just need to see this through in person first and then figure out how to do this online. Thanks for the interest!
