## Late Arrivals

Anecdote

Today, I decided I'd make a note of how many minutes late my students showed up for their lecture. I have two lectures on Monday, both an hour long (well, 50 minutes as I'm supposed to finish 10 minutes before the hour to facilitate change-overs). I wrote the times of the late-comers on the board, so people who had arrived earlier could be impressed. Here are the results:

CE217 9am

**minutes late** | **students** |

0 | 13 |

1 | 1 |

3 | 1 |

5 | 2 |

12 | 2 |

41 | 1 |

9 students didn't show up at all.

CE317 1pm

**minutes late** | **students** |

0 | 14 |

1 | 2 |

3 | 1 |

10 | 1 |

12 | 2 |

16 | 1 |

20 | 2 |

18 students didn't show up at all.

It'll be interesting to see what happens netx year, when I start teaching students who are spending £9,000 a year to come to my lectures, given that each lecture will have cost them £9000/20/8=£56.25 .
