    .

    I have a few things which will probably be suitable but, yeah, definitely using this an an excuse - it will be great not to spend most of my life in work uniform. Thank you again, that's really helpful.



    I see what you did there!
    Lol you definitely deserve it!
    If you're buying a new one/s(?), get a sort of dress you'd be wearing for some special family celebration or something in a nice restaurant. At formals, some dress a bit more casually, some a little bit more proms-like (but mid-length) but you'll be safe with anything within those range.

    Thanks for posting that! My college hasn't sent me any work (yet) but I'm going to give the natsci booklet a go anyway.
    No problem. I’ve not been sent anything yet either but stumbled across that page by accident. I’d be surprised if they didn’t point me to it fairly soon so I think I’m pretty safe starting on the workbook. Currently just starting the Functions and Curves section.

    That's why I always use them little numbers, like x_3, y^{-1}, so people actually know what numbers I'm talking bout.

    Like... for your parents to visit? Yeah pretty normal. My parents live fairly close to Cambridge so come see me once or twice a term.

    ah, clever! so x is actually 3, and y is actually minus 1?

    so y bother factorising this stuff "(x^2 -7)/(x^2 - x - 2)= (x^2-x-2-5+x)/(x^2-x-2) = 1 + (x-5)/(x^2-x-2)" when u cud just say

    (x^2-7)/(x^2 - x - 2) = (2-7)/(2-2-2) = (2-7)/(-2) = (2+7)/(2) = 2/2 + 7/2 = 9/2 = 4 remander 1

    lol @ mathmos, not so clever after all is they??
