The one at Glen Eyre? I'm there as well helping out.

Do you mean Maths done by Maths students? The stuff Engineers do is completely separate and entirely Applied Maths. In first year they cover Laplace transforms which Maths students don't do until 2nd year semester 2!

I'm at Monte I don't know how 900 people will fit into the tiny bar here

Just found the first year maths syllabus for engineering students lecture by lecture :

Semester 1:

Differential calculus: standard rules; Newton's method for finding roots (Newton-Rafson); simple partial differentiation.
Integral calculus: standard integrals; integration by parts; numerical integration.
Complex numbers: algebra; Argand diagram; polar form; Euler's formula.
Differential equations: classification; simple first and second order differential equations.
Functions: inverse; trigonometric; exponential and hyperbolic.
Differentiation: maxima, minima and points of inflection; curve sketching; implicit, parametric and logarithmic differentiation.
Integration: substitution; applications to centroids, volumes of revolution etc.
Integration: integration of rational functions; improper integrals.
Integration: double integral; polar coordinates; triple integrals.
Vectors I: basic properties, Cartesian components, scalar and vector products.
Vectors II: triple products, differentiation and integration of vectors, vector equations of lines and planes.

Semester 2:

Complex numbers: De Moivre's theorem; roots; logarithm of a complex number.
Matrix algebra: terminology; addition, subtraction and multiplication of matrices; determinants.
Matrix algebra: inverse of matrix using cofactors; sets of linear equations; solution of sets of linear equations using elimination method; inverse of matrix using elimination method.
Matrix algebra: rank; eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
Ordinary differential equations: solution of first order equations (including linear and exact).
Ordinary differential equations: linear operators; second order linear inhomogeneous equations with constant coefficients; free and forced oscillations.
Laplace transforms: transforms of standard functions; solution of linear differential equations with constant coefficients.
Laplace Transforms: Transform of Heaviside step function, Second Shift Theorem, application to differential equations.
Further calculus: sequences and series; Taylor's series and Maclaurin's series.
Further calculus: chain rule for partial differentiation; higher partial derivatives; errors.
Fourier series: periodic signals, whole range Fourier series.

I've done everything there except Laplace transformations and fourier series before so shouldn't be bad at the rest of it

Oh and is Lancaster building the building that's sinking into the ground that was designed by civil engineering students and listed so they can't knock it down? Got my intro lecture there

Not sure, I think it's probably either Building 5 or 7 right near the library on Monte side of the road.

This was 2 years ago, and it's because we had split events each night! Monte Bar fits 375 :-)
Despite having the band as I bought the monte pack I wasn't allowed in as it was full

Oh well, going to a house party instead
Welcome to Southampton, freshers! I chose the wrong week to have absolutely NO money. Off to Portswood now, interested to see how packed it is...I remember Freshers' week 2009 being a total write-off
Me and my housemate had to go with a Fresher to hospital because they broke their ankle.

Just got back in now, eaten nothing apart from a single Jaffa Cake all day and had 7 pints + a Jagerbomb, can't be good for my stomach/liver!
I really have no intention of going out this week... I'm becoming iller an iller as I (croakily) speak.
I'm definitely losing my voice already!
Ended up in Sobar last night, was such a good night! Definitely better than last year somehow.
I've been out 2 days in a row and I feel terrible. I'm such an old man
When I got to Glen last night I wasn't expecting to have to move pool tables around - my back is rather painful today.

I think we all need to stop being so moany.
I went to Jesters, saw cloop like ALWAYS and got started on by two guys who eventually got chucked out. (I always attract lairy Jesters-clients, I got punched there in first year...)

There are lairy people in Jesters?

My sarcasm detector doesn't work online, so I'm just going to answer seriously. Yes; yes there are. I guess seeing as I often get into arguments there with randomers, I might be one of them.

No sarcasm. I am probably to drunk to notice them!
My timetable is finalised.

That or you've never noticed them because you are one.... oooh...

I'm going to the bunfight to setup soon - spent the whole afternoon doing our boards and got a bit carried away, they're awesome though! (come and see SSAGO! I'm wearing a tshirt with Heather on the back and I'm the social sec!)
I am going to the bunfight tomorrow. Where will you guys be hanging out?

so is mine.
I'll be on the SUMS stand from 9-6 probably embarrassing myself.
