Do you mean just making dots instead of a line?
If so, when you do plt.plot(x,y) you can put in a third argument that changes the line of the graph. It defaults to a blue line 'b-' but it can be changed. It's in Day 7's , Matplotlib document.
Oops, Day 6*

I think he said something about having to code in python or something along those lines. Either that or draw a horse with paperclips and orange peels. @rywerth

I just tested the entire algorithm1 in word very carefully and used a unique word counter. I got 844 words, the same number I get with my code. I am pretty sure that the expected assert value is a mistake.

@ellisonbg If the assert test is in fact wrong, can we have an extension on the assignment? I've spent a lot of time trying to pass this test with no success.

I get 848, the value in the assert. Hmm.

I'm fairly certain it has to do with the order of execution, but I can't figure out where or why.
My best guess is that hyphens are screwing it up somewhere, but I'm honestly not sure and don't know how to debug something like this.
I'm doing the steps in the right order, though, and pass all the tests.

Maybe after the test someone can post a gist of their tokenize array? I'd like to cross-refernece it with mine to see what's missing.
