the merge happens on the website not from the terminal. This is for students to be able to visualize it in the GUI.

So are you saying that git pull origin master is not required? Why would I pull master locally then just push my branch up?

git pull origin master is being executed again at step 5. when you push to your branch it creates the pull request on the github website.
