The collision model a occurs only when the reactants collide enough energy and in the proper orientation. It explains why certain chemical reaction happen more quickly at higher temps. The activated complex theory relates the rate of reaction to an equilibrium between the reactants and a transition state.
If you are referring to Lyndon's packet, he is referring to the number of molecules that need to collide at a certain orientation and activation energy based on the order of the reaction. If the reaction was 3rd order then that would mean 3 molecules would have to collide in a certain orientation and have enough activation energy.
