1. ## even-numbered week

We number the week for the whole term as Week 1, Week 2.... What is the correct term to refer to those weeks with even number such as Week 2, Week 4, Week 6, etc. Can we name it 'even-numbered week'?

I suppose yes, but it's very strange for me . on my side, one usually says odd days or even days but rarely says the same for week.

Thanks Hanky. Refer to the examples you gave, I now change tern to 'even weeks'.

This sort of numbering system is quite common in UK schools, where the complex problems of time-tabling in a large school is often solved by the introduction of a two-week cycle. Rather than have - say -14 weeks in a term, numbered 1-14, they just have two numbers. They are not called 'odd' or 'even'; they are called 'week 1' and 'week 2'.

20/30 years ago, when my choir rehearsed in various schools, it initially seemed strange to me (a child of the '60s, when all schools had a weekly time-table) to see notices in schools saying 'This is week1/2'; but now it seems quite normal. A similar approach is taken in various other time-tabling contexts (for example, rubbish/recycling collections - Week 1 and Week 2 Collection Dates ).
