Who teaches what?

Lectures:   Andy Ruina    Tues & Thurs  at  10:10 in Kimball B11. 607 327-0013
The class goes better if people crowd in the front (less need for loud voice, more rapport, able to write smaller on the blackboard). If you come early, please fight your claustrophobias and please sit in the middle of a frontish row. Try to avoid creating empty seats in the middle. That way people who come later don't have to climb over you to get to an empty seat. Even if you come late please don't sit in the back. Best is if the front rows are packed and the back rows or so are totally empty. Just want to casually look on in a detached manner? Please do that from a front row.
