Strike action paused! The strike action which caused significant disruption to the first half of the semester has been paused to allow for a Joint Expert Panel to be convened to make an in-depth assessment of the pension fund. It is highly unlikely that strike action will resume this academic year, although nothing is certain.

Using the Library
Please do the following.
Follow the section 'Timetable and Tutorial Groups' in the Introductory Computing Session. The key point is that the timetable on the iSheffield app is unreliable, and the best timetable for maths modules is found by logging in to the Tutorial Groups and Personalised Timetables page under Current Undergraduates on the School of Mathematics and Statistics webpage.
Every course has information online by looking on the Module List under Current Undergraduates on the School of Mathematics and Statistics webpage. If there's a course homepage or MOLE site, look there to find out what you have missed so far. If it is unclear, contact the lecturer, preferably by talking to them at the end of one of the lectures. It is important to get up to date as quickly as you can, as otherwise it is easy to get too far behind to properly catch-up.
