  1. I completely agree with your feelings on the plectica maps and having to answer them in that format. It is absolutely not conducive to learning it in any different way just becuase we can put the questions in a box and make a little line for conncetions. I feel that it almost makes everyhthing look too busy and, as you put it, just answering the questions and being finished would not interfere with one’s ability to master the information. It only would make it easier in my opinion. Yes, I agree the formatting and requirement of mapping out questions to be tedious for no reason.

  2. I agree with you about not needing textbooks. I feel like there is enough information provided, that we could go without textbooks. The class does seem overwhelming, but as we progress through the class it seems to get easier. Your map looks great! Best of luck for the rest of the semester.
