Comparison of pages views for 2008 and 2009 shows the striking repeatability of student access. The class size was the same (100+/-2) each semester. Note peaks on Monday and Wednesday (heavy lab days), the drop during spring break, and small drops on the second week of two week long labs. During April, the weekly pattern breaks down because the students are working on final projects. I don't know what causes the large fluctuations during this time.
