Are you bold enough to dispute it?

    I think "possible other factors" is a little bit too vague isn't it?
    Besides, assuming "time of class" meant the length of a class, I'd say that was less important than the actual time the class started. (Earlier classes, less attendance obviously)

    So, in conclusion, my Alternative Class Attendance Theory is something along the lines of
    attendance = (start time * lecturer personality * subject interest)/length of class

    Nono, time of class means start time of class, otherwise I would have said length of class.

    Other factors have not yet been established, thus I left that one open. It can be anything from how good the class is, how good the teacher is, how lazy the students are, what is currently on TV , bed time the night before etc. The only indisputable factor in the equation is that attendance is inversely proportional to tiem of class.

    Inversely proportional? That's extremely disputable! Earlier classes tend to be attended by far less people than later ones - surely that's always the case. People are forever waking up late or sleeping in and missing the 9:00 classes, but anything in the afternoon is just fine .
