Re: Replaying Events for 2021

I get keeping all events, but if they’re keeping stuff verbatim, that’s pretty dull. At the very least they should make the events harder so that people have to extend even further. Add more topics to study events; widen the range of on-site labs; more parameters for builds. That would in my opinion...

Re: Astronomy C

This problem set from this particular PA finals is really confusing me, problems 80-83. Could someone help me understand what formula or formulas I need to be using for this?

Re: Codebusters C

So states is coming up in PA, but I'm still very confused as to how the crib word is supposed to be utilized when doing cryptanalysis of a vigenere. I've looked online for a while now, but I keep getting the kasiski method, and while I do believe it is a very good idea to use, I still have no clue a...

Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

You should learn as much as you can for either division as long as it's within the scope of the rules :) Well, that is the question. Neither 'rogen moraines' and 'h, n, and r channels' are mentioned in the Div B Rules. They are not mentioned in Div C Rules either, but since "other" moraines are men...

Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

Hey guys, so I'm stuck on a question for a practice test, and I don't understand why the answer is wrong. What do ice cores preserve that allow us to understand more about past climates? a) They show the granular composition of the snow at the time, which shows the terrestrial elements most prevale...

Re: Road Scholar B

Is there a fun way to study for Road Scholar? I may or may not have been placed in the event and I'm not sure where to start studying. The best way I can assume would be a fun way to study, is to simply while you're out on the road try to follow yourself on a paper map. I understand this is very fa...

Re: Fermi Questions C

What are some common conversions/weird units I should know, as someone new to this event? You'll pretty much need to know any sort of conversion. From what I hear from others, astronomical distances like light years or parsecs are good, since those distances are pretty massive. You should also figu...
