Re: Math Ability of Competitors

Calculus should be intentionally avoided as much as possible in Div C tests. There are however some exceptions where basic calculus is necessary (Circuit Lab comes to mind) to solve problems, but supervisors should not intentionally try to test students understanding of calc. The focus of calculatio...

Re: Florida 2019

So is it confirmed that UF is hosting the states for 2020? Pretty much - the President of FSO and Valerie (state director) are both willing to let us run it, but I am waiting to ensure that UF admin will give us access to the rooms we need. They have been being unresponsive recently (probably becau...

Re: Florida 2019

Also, many teams that do not hope much from award ceremony leave early and miss out on things. I like them to feel more involved. I will also recommend to state to have most improved, best new comers and spirit award for teams, so every team has something to look forward. Definitely a fan of the "m...

Re: Florida 2019

The "for fun" schools can be ranked among themselves, and we can also see how everyone would compare in combined list, but the official list would be used in award ceremony and determines the placements and state qualifiers....

Re: Nationals Event Discussion

Out of curiosity, how many points was the test out of and how did the top teams score? Were scores close between top teams or were they more spread out? What was a bigger factor differentiating teams -- the multiple choice, free response, or lab? Thank you for the feedback! I am not allowed to give...

Re: Nationals Event Discussion

Circuit Lab C Thought I would share some thoughts on how the event went from a supervisor perspective. Test Design: The format was heavily influenced by my organic chemistry exams that I took over the past year. The boxes for answers, score totalling page, and "draw this" type of questions were all...
