Title: The Lights of Mathile 212
Author(s): Laurence Robinson*
Companies: Ohio Northern University
Keywords: Lighting system ; Fidgeting with light switches ; Frustration

The Mathile Center for the Natural Sciences (named for Clayton L. Mathile, an alumnus and benefactor of Ohio Northern University) houses the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at ONU. As Associate Professor of Statistics, I have lectured for many courses in room Mathile 212. Like other faculty and students using this room, I have found the lighting system to be very confusing, as getting the desired lighting in the room often requires several seconds of fidgeting with numerous light switches. After six and one-half years of frustration, I decided it was time to figure out how it all works.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
