Re: Disease Detective B/C

The rules for Disease Detectives seem to be getting more and more vague every year, regarding the math part of the event, which is, in itself, the most important part of the competition. :/ You are essentially correct in which you said mathematics is an important part of Disease Detectives competit...

Re: Disease Detective B/C

Can someone explain the difference between Cohort and Case Control? For instance, when one would be used as opposed to the other? I know one compares the exposed and non-exposed vs those with the disease and not - however, what is the real difference between Odds ratio and Relative Risk? While they...

Maybe we could petition them?


Maybe. It would be helpful though to know which teams would be going, and which teams want to go..

...And you won't know that until state competitions get going.


Wait you want to petition it being at UCF? :?:

Social Groups - Where do you belong?

Okay, the idea of the topic is - what kind of groups do you associate with, and how does it affect Science Olympiad, or how it doesn't, whatever, I just want to kind of see what people in Science Olympiad do. Only put major ones, not every little group. For example, I associate myself with; Students...

Re: Disease Detective B/C

Does anybody know any good books we could use to help us study? Hi, these aren't "Disease Detectives" books, but they are what I use to study (I got tenth nationals last year so they work). "Principles of Epidemiology": http://www.cdc.gov/training/products/ss1000/ss1000-ol.pdf &...

Re: The Test Exchange is Dying

My primary event is Disease Detectives, and over the last year I've probably seen over 30 tests scattered on the internet. If I cite the location where I've taken them from, can I post them to the test exchange, or should I contact the makers and gain direct permission? If this isn't necessary, you ...

Does anyone know if there's going to be any twists on it this year, or just same old ED?

Re: Greatest Number Ever (73)

Okay, since everything I say is just BS, give me a number instead of just hating. And we'll see how wonderful and how much greater your number is compared to 73. And also, if the coincidences are not a good measure of how wonderful a number is, then what is? You're very good at saying how I'm wrong...

FATs are the only trebuchet's worth building. Look at all the best trebuchets and point out one normal one... you can't. If you want to compete, you're gonna have to gain weight (pun, FAT, fat, no...?).

Re: Greatest Number Ever (73)

If we assume that 73 is the greatest number ever, then it follows that there exists no number n such that n > 73 . Now, without loss of generality, consider the number 85. 85 > 73 is evidently true, and so there is at least one number which is greater than 73. Thus our assumption is incorrect, and ...
