I was following along completely fine with plain JS. Suddenly, the JQuery approach to AJAX sounds more confusing to me.
Where is the
.open('GET', 'whateverpage.html') and
.send() portions of code in the JQuery approach?

The beauty of jQuery for AJAX is that you don't have to do all those separate operations. The jQuery functions handle it all for you! It makes it way simpler.
I say recently because now there's "fetch". If you're not familiar with it, you might try the Working With the Fetch API after you finish your jQuery course.
