6 * 8 matrix timetable representation

-------------------------------------

6 rows = monday, tuesday,wenesday,thursday,friday,saturday

8 columns = first period, second period, third period, fourth period, fifth period, sixth period, seventh period, eight period.

8 * 6 matrix timetable representation

-------------------------------------

8 rows = first period, second period, third period, fourth period, fifth period, sixth period, seventh period, eight period.

6 columns = monday,tuesday,wednesday,thursday,friday,saturday

Both the 8*6 OR 6*8 matrix school timetable will work for entering the data as English,Science,Maths,Geography etc in the period row.

The 6*8 offers a landscape representation and 8*6 offers a portrait data representation.

Which among the two would be more appealing for designing the School Timetable ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

It is a matter of personal preference!

The 8 rows (time periods) X 6 columns (days of the week) is appealing because

it resembles a calendar where days of the week appear as headings in each column,

and is natural to consider as time increases from top to bottom.

I prefer that way.
