How about a scheduling problem?

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:26 pm by carolynresearch

Take five students, each taking three courses and TA-ing one course. Some aren’t morning people, so forget about any times before 10am. Add meetings, outside commitments, a couple part-time jobs, and so on.

How many 1.5 hour slots are exist in which all five students area available?

Current hypothesis – none.

The cranky part of me wonders why I’m doing an empirical study. I could have done coding, or math. Algebra and code are always available.
