Hi everyone! My name is Jess and I'm a third year Mathematics student. My blogs will be about the up and downs of final year, trying to be a grown up, life in Leicester outside of university, and attempting to play rugby for the first time!

It draws on the building blocks of Calculus and Linear Algebra in the first and second years, and is all about the study of complex numbers, complex functions and how they behave. If Maths […]
The exam period is over! Hooray! I survived (just). There was a small moment of doubt to whether I would when I drew a face on a banana and sent a story of it to my friends on snapchat, but I made it through. Just a small moment of revision madness. I’d like to thank […]
Originally I had intended this post to be some advice for the exams, but it turned very quickly into this. So, for a bit of light-hearted relief during the exam season, here is “A Day in the Life- Revising for a Maths Exam.”
Happy 2015! New year, new start, and a new blogger for the maths department. I’m Jess, and as my profile will tell you, I’m a final year BSc Mathematics student, taking on the task of blogging as I head into the last few months of my degree. Scary thought…
