There has been good news given today!
Our teachers have actually noticed the problem in our Cross Sectional Labs, and are going to try to fix it.
Let me break it down for you a little.
Our lab has 5 rooms. Each room has one machine, and one bed. When scanning, you need one person to scan, and one person to be the “patient.” Those of you that are good at math will see that it means there should be 10 people per lab class. (That would make two to a room.) There are 24 people in my program, so we have 12 people per lab class. That leaves 2 extra, which makes two groups of three. Two people, therefore, are always standing around doing nothing, and groups of three have to divide their 2 hour lab between 3 people instead of getting an hour each.
How do we fix this problem? Holy-crap-it’s-simple! Open another lab section. Have 3 labs with 8 people in each one. Bam, we’re done.
It feels really awesome to know that the teachers noticed the problem, and are trying to fix it as soon as possible.
On another note, Physics class has become a rather annoying study hall for me. I write my own notes out of the book, do the assignment during class, and pay no attention to the teacher or anything he is saying. The test I have on Thursday of next week will decide whether or not this is a better situation than listening to that tired, old wind-bag natter on about Sibley, Iowa.
