Scheduling We've decided (Steve and I) that since there are only two sections of 415 this year we could probably work to make your lives easier by alternating the classes. Each of us will do two weeks on, two weeks off, alternating. The first two weeks are organic (chosen totally randomly, based on the mood Steve and I were in this morning). I will see all of your bright shining faces on Monday, September 8th.
