I'm not sure how I have missed this

Please tag me as it'd be great to support a fellow mathematician.

Which has been your favourite module so far?

Thanks, I'll add you! And last year we did a module on Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations which was definitely my favourite Can't say anything about this year's modules as I've not started them yet
