Re: Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C

I was looking through the image gallery and noticed that there was not a section for Thermodyanmics. Perhaps it would be a good idea to have a section in case anyone wanted to post a picture of their device?

Re: Optics B/C

Generally, knowledge of calculus shouldn't be required for any science olympiad event. It depends on the person writing the test; he or she technically CAN put calculus beased questions on the test, but i've only heard of one instance in which a test required calculus.

Re: MagLev C [Trial]

Does anyone have any idea of what the test section will be like? Do you think that they be very heavy on equations and calculations like the Geometric Optics section of Optics or perhaps more content based? I imagine the test to contain both but probably quite a bit more content based than optics. T...

Re: Optics B/C

How about for Division C? It can't hurt to know it, but it's not something you should focus on. You do have a binder, so its okay to put in really obscure things that you think might just come up. Yeah, but somtimes it's hard to utilize something that's in the binder if you've never practiced with ...

Re: Astronomy C

Thanks!

Has stellar evolution been a topic before?
How close is it to variable stars? Would old tests from when the topic was variable stars be good for practice?

Re: Astronomy C

Stellar evolution anyone? I like how type 1a supernovae seem to be emphasized this year, since it works well with evolution, but allows it to branch out a little bit into variable stars and other subjects. This could be an interesting topic, although I do admit that I really liked active galaxies l...

Re: Where are you going for colleges?

Actually, if anyone is going to reply to cobra's post, please post publicly. I'm sure more than more than one person would like to know and this is partly the intent of this thread. I am also interested if anyone has something to say.
