Old JavaScript functions?

Why in this lesson are we not using arrow functions or other ES6 functions? I get confused because we were taught these cool new ES6 features in the previous module but they're not used.

E6 adds 'syntactic sugar' with arrow functions, but doesn't require that you use them. Maybe in some cases it's more readable to do a function declaration or expression. That's my guess. I'm curious as to what someone more experienced might say.
