Re: 2012 National Tournament: University of Central Florida

Techmaster55- Compute This Me- Road Scholar Rmp509- R&M Our team didn't do that well this year (massive tech failure besides mousetrap), and this is the first time we weren't in the top ten in the last 5ish years.

Re: Disease Detective B/C

Ok, that's what I thought. Case studies seem to really be our downfall; it's just that there are so many different opinions on them. Anything else really important I'll need to know study-wise?

Re: Road Scholar B

The event supervisor is the same guy that supervised/wrote NY States. He'll let you split it, and makes the event/answer sheet so that you can split those at well.

Re: Fantasy Sports? How about Fantasy Science Olympiad!

Some notes: 1. Last year there were 15 full C teams submitted. This year there are 28. It's 12 and 23 for B (ILoveEgretsClub left Anatomy open, otherwise it would be 24). Looks like some good competition this year. 2. Current top vote-getters: C: 1. Troy Towers - 18 2. Solon Disease Detectives - 17...

Re: Disease Detective B/C

I looked around, and it seems like there's an equal split between people who put it as percentages and cases per 100,000. Is it okay if I use both on the test? For example... Ans: 449 cases per 100,000 (4.49%) I believe it would be 0.449%... If they specify which to use or use either in a question,...
