I would help, but that, my dear, is applied math, and I am a pure math snob. Where's a smiley turning up its nose when you need one? I aced all my calculus and vector calc and diff eq courses, but then I promptly forgot them. Sadly, I am in the process of forgetting a lot of pure math too, but only because there's not much use for it in dead languages. Sometimes it makes me to remember all the math I used to know and love.

oh dear.. I don't remember much of it, but it's rather difficult, Jiat.. It's when you don't have one variable, but two or more.
I'm so glad I'm done with all the mathematics.. *shudders*
When I had statistics I used a program called SPSS.. I don't know if you know it, but it might be helpful..

started last week ma'am! the lectures aren't too bad. i start at 2pm every day. but they decided that as final year students, we should be put through the torture chambers so we have assignments and counselling cases blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah which drags us back to school at 10am anyway for discussion sessions and of course there's the honours project

10 am isn't THAT early. Years 1-4 we had lectures starting 8 am every day and only the last year I could make the schedule so that we started at 9 am or 10 am.

10 AM is not that bad for final year. But I have to admit, I didn't like the discussion sessions very much either.
Belgian students are very passive.. it's a thing that goes back from the earlier years, let's say 50's and up, where a professor would be 'God' and all that was expected from students was to shut up and listen and take notes. So now (with The Netherlands as an example) the government is trying to get more interaction from the students. We've had guest speakers from The Netherlands and the UK and they all say how passive and timid the Belgian students are and nobody likes to put up their hand to answer questions (even though they know it). (I can't tell you how many painful silences we've sat through. "No-one?" *pause* "Fine, I'll answer myself." )
So appearantly we gotta be more blunt and daring and speak up for the whole auditory. (no way ) You know how lecturers sometimes hold a large stick to point out things at the blackboard? Well some of them use that stick to point out students in the audience. I can say for a fact, it's not a very pleasurable experience when such a stick is shoved almost up your nose and you have to answer some question.

oh no! 10am's not early of course. i've been living with 8am classes for the last 3 years. and the discussions are group discussions because our assignments are mainly group work. it's the fitting in group discussions into 5 different schedules that's the problem. and i hate it!!!!

In all my years of high school I had to wake up at 6 am because I had classes at 7:30 am every day. So I feel for you.
