Essex allows the blocks to split for labs or health. One assumes the other half is study hall. Also, some classes run a full block, 1 semester, 0.5 credit.

Lunch slots into the third block.

TA happens on Tuesday and Thursday.

Since these are defined by the week: 180/5 = 36 weeks.

A, B, C are semester classes: 18*( 90 + 90 + 90 + 90 + 50 ) = 7380 min = 123 hrs

D, E are year-long classes: 36*( 90 + 90 + 50 ) = 8280 min = 138 hrs

D and E are randomly chosen. They are not predominantly English or Math.

I am, for now, a scheduler. I can't believe I read this stuff. But it looks like something is missing or something is extra in the Beaver Blocks.

x x x x H

except no one uses those letters. They are actually designated as 1 - 7, corresponding to Monday's position.

D-lunch for 9 and 10

E-lunch for 11 and 12

Every class has one day "punched out" - so a math class meets 4 days a week.

Those punch outs get spliced together to create art, gym, music, health and research classes.

Those x's are nothing, but the H is an extra period Friday (all periods shortened from 55 to 48 minutes), during which something like mandatory club hour takes place. We call it seminar.

8 - 2:50 (6 hours, 50 minutes).

Thanks for the information. It was very interesting to me!

ReplyDeletejd,

ReplyDeleteI fixed the Badger Block.

Essentially, it is a traditional 8 period day, except that tuesday and wed are block periods. Tuesday is AA CC EE GG and then Wed is BB DD FF HH.
