Desk Arrangements

Post by elendiastarman » Mon Oct 12, 2009 5:48 pm

Is there a non-trivial way (like a circle) to arrange desks so that any number of students can see all other students? Right now, I happen to be unable to see 4 or 5 students out of about 20, which can be annoying when those students are talking.
Want some

Off the top of my head, I think that any non-convex curve would result in someone not seeing someone else.
