-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

Anyone know if Metric Mastery will come back for its 3rd year in 2015? Anyone know the rotation plan?

Getting a bit ahead of yourself aren't you? I am pretty sure it's coming back next year, if it stays true to past habits.

Most events tend to be on 2 year cycles. I wouldn't bet on it returning next year, but you never know what might change. We don't lock down the event rotations until the summer.

Thank you so much. Seems easy but always hard for students to master! Nice changes on the new rules!

Does anyone have any good recourses for metric mastery? I have basic information but I want to get more into the history of the metric system.

A wikipedia article probably has all you need for the history part. Who knows what you'll encounter at tournaments, but last year our MM team had very little history last year

Other good resources are ... your kitchen and garage and such. What is the area of your bathroom mirror? Measure it and write it in dry erase marker right on the mirror so that each morning when you brush your teeth, you see that number. Look at cans and bottles in the kitchen. Feel their mass, measure their volumes, calculate their surface areas. How about that marble or golf ball? Use a paper and put a few points on it and estimate the distance between A and B. Make an angle and guess it. Get an outdoor thermometer and step outside, estimate the temperature and then check the thermometer.

Have fun!

Even after going through your tips hscmom, I am still kind of stuck on how to prepare for competition. At competition it seems to be much more difficult than simple estimation and measurement. How do I prepare for things like: A disc with multiple holes, of different sizes, and find the area of one of the circles? Or estimate the temperature of a container of water in a hot room with huge amounts of people inside? It seems that even if you prepare and practice a lot, it's almost impossible to know how you will do at competition. Any help?
