Anchor Courses

A rational approach to space allocation calls first for assignment of space for very large courses, followed by assignment of space for all others. Most of the largest courses Rice offers are "service" courses in BIOC, CHEM, EBIO, MATH, PHYS, and STAT. These service courses are "anchored" in time (day/time meeting pattern) and space (planned classroom) in order to provide a stable base and appropriate meeting spaces for all Rice classes.
