Final Exam Mathematics Provide a counter example to Goldbach's Conjecture. Reconstruct Fermat's proof of Fermat's Theorem. Using the construction paper and Scotch tape found on the back of this exam, build a working model of a sphere which can be turned inside out without any folds. I love how ever...

Re: Physics Lab B/C

If you want to do well at nats, you'll need to focus on both aspects.

The blade part is probably the easiest to improve at first but once you get to a certain point, it's really hard to make a breakthrough.

Re: Technical Problem Solving C

You know, I definitely think that this event works better as one test instead of stations. That way, you have time to think about the questions and aren't rushing around to stations.

What do you guys think?

Re: Astronomy C

I use a small binder of important equations and some info on each DSO. There is no point swamping a binder with piles of information that will almost certainly not come up.

If you want a huge data reservoir, I would guess that a laptop would be your best bet.

Hope that helps.

Re: Indiana Science Olympiad

I think it might be worthwhile to limit resources in Herpetology. However, I would not like to go into a rocks and minerals competition without a binder. There are a huge number of things (locations were samples can be found, uses of each rock/mineral, crystal structures, relative hardness,...) that...

Re: Ohio 2010

Oh yeah, sorry.

I didn't mean that Ohio schools had SO classes. I just know that some of the top schools in other states do that.
I guess I was more talking about what makes a strong team in general.
