### When do term weeks start?!

Monday, or Sunday?!

• go.warwick.ac.uk/timetable says Monday…
• Student Cinema says Sunday
• My gut instinct always says Sunday…
• Week 10 Finishes on a Saturday (so what happened to Sunday between 10&11)
• RaW's minidisc-booking sheet starts on a Saturday! (Thanks Chris Doidge!)
• Argh!!!

2. ISO 8601 says that week numbers are calculated from the first Monday of each year. So take for example this year, New Year's Day 2006 was actually in Week 52 2005.

Does that help?

4. "Week 01 of a year is per definition the first week that has the Thursday in this year, which is equivalent to the week that contains the fourth day of January. In other words, the first week of a new year is the week that has the majority of its days in the new year. Week 01 might also contain days from the previous year and the week before week 01 of a year is the last week (52 or 53) of the previous year even if it contains days from the new year. A week starts with Monday (day 1) and ends with Sunday (day 7)."

The first week of the new year may begin (ie contain days from) the year before, but this does not effect New Year's day, which is always January 1st.

5. Thank you very much for that link – I hope it is useful for the next year's projects – I have already finished mine! (I will put a completion post on soon).

Thanks again though,
