I cannot speak for the Caltech instructor but in my NTU class I ask each student to do so on there own (repeating the procedure for, say, 1000 times) and plot the histogram. That is an interesting first assignment.

The answer depends upon if I use log or linear scaling.
Aren't CS algorithm efficiencies usually classified in log scaling?
Or am I over-thinking this?
I personally don't see any need to consider scaling.
