Re: Forensics C

At regional, there were questions about the "medulla index" for each type of hair. As far as I can tell, they probably meant the medullary index, and this is not dependent on the type of hair. Does anyone know what the medullary index would be for each hair? Also, does anyone know the index of refr...

Re: Illinois 2017

So it's been two years since I went to state, and I didn't pay attention to the team results that year. The last time I did pay attention (2014), they gave team awards for A as well as AA. However, I don't remember what they've done the past several years. The information on the official website se...

Re: Disease Detectives B/C

I find the CDC online book inadequate, but, more to the point, the print book I own is inadequate, too. This event really hits two different topics: epidemiology and <i>biostatistics</i>. You really need something for both. Well, then there's the topical stuff, which may be a third arm...I don't th...

Re: Hydrogeology C

In the practice scenario online they give you what to put in each box and how to calculate most things, does anyone know if they keep that at competitions? Yes basically for the most part. The only difference is usually the placement of wells, their depths and probably the soils in them. Otherwise ...

Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

Thanks guys! You guys are insane (in a good way) for being able to read those things. I hope to improve, geology isn't the peak of my interest as I love chemistry and math but people have taken Chem Lab already (although not that well) so I took over this and I hope to improve. Geology is hard and r...

Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

Any chance anybody has some tests I could practice with? Ran out. Also in general I feel like my dynamic score is not up to par to what it should be and it is holding the team back. So I want to improve as much as possible for state. Any books you guys recommend to read, or any things to looks and s...

Re: Illinois 2017

Yea that makes sense. I mean my coach has probably gotten it because I just want to see how I did in some events and who else did well at the CoD regionals and is going to state with us. Personally while some may get discouraged that a JV beat a varsity, we can't forget that the JV team could have m...

Re: Game On C

Now, for Game On (noob here) is there a template people follow and try to get done ASAP to get the max points. Do you have a specific game in mind like a maze or something and just build the game around it, because I have no idea what process to do or to even aim for to get a lot of points and how I...

Re: Illinois 2017

So I can't see the results from Palatine's invite on avogadro. Anybody have them? I have results, though I'm not sure how I can send them to you. It looks like attachments are blocked in this forum right now; probably a remnant of forum rollover (bernard?). I'd suggest you save it as an image file ...
