Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

Excuse me, but why is there even a binder given for this event? I've never done Dyplan before but I did 3 study last year and with the amount of things you have to learn about an entire binder feels like overkill. Like what? To be fair, glaciers was a relatively small topic so a notesheet made sens...

Re: Geologic Mapping C

Can someone explain to me how a stereonet works? I've been looking at a couple different resources so far, but nothing makes sense,, Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe they removed stereonets from the rules this year. They did remove its own section, but it still counts as a map projection so s...

Re: Codebusters C

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but there's no Atbash Cipher this year...?
There is no atbash cipher according to the rules, although an affine cipher with a = 25 and b = 25 would be the exact same thing :)

Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

Does anyone know why they changed it to one year rotations? Doing the same topic for your 2nd year actually gives quite the head start on people who have just entered the event. I'm not sure how it shapes up for other events, but that effect is quite pronounced in DyPlan. That's also most likely wh...

Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

So.... anyone want to talk about the fact we get a binder this year? Heavily disliked. I feel like a lot of tests are just going to turn out to be random knowledge pulled from Wikipedia footnotes rather than application-based stuff like Dyplan is supposed to be. And now its justifiable since "we sh...

Re: 9th Graders in Division B

I believe the 9th graders' main advantage comes from simply being older and doing more SciOly. There is clearly a difference between my skill in SciOly now when contrasted with something even as close as 1 year ago. I do not know how the curriculum is wherever you all are from, but I highly doubt my...

Re: Scioly Summer Study Session 2019

Hey sorry for being so bothersome but its been 8 days since I sent my revised DyPlan materials to Unome, so I was hoping my email didn't get lost in the inbox or something.
