Three programs, three different spring break weeks: CEU’s was two weeks ago, BSM’s was last week, and AIT (some of whose students sometimes come to my problem-solving seminars)’s is next week.

Point one: this means I basically don’t get a spring break. No problem—I could fit a week in Berlin (for the Fulbright conference) in the gap widened by one of those spring breaks. (Unlike most people, I consider “spring break” a time to flee the approaching spring by going north or inside. :))

Point two: with this weekend being the intersection of the BSM and AIT spring breaks, predicted attendance for my problem-solving seminar was very low. So I decided to go all-out and make this week’s topic integration techniques. Attendance was rather low indeed.
