168-9 Checks against variable names not indicated in instructions

Solution checker is grading against variables the student was not told to use, “pandas_elapsed” and “elapsed”. There is no indication that the student should assign a list of runtimes to any specific variable, only the median.

While I’m at it, the instructions to turn the algorithm into a function could have been much clearer, and at that point why aren’t we being asked to use timeit?
