Disease Detectives B/C

-The path of the Administrator is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-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.

Man, it feels really weird to not be competing in this event after doing it for 5 years. Best of luck to all of you who actually are! :)

The focus is still Environmental Quality I think, so it should cover pretty similar topics and questions.

Disease Detectives

I haven't seen the official rules yet, but the calculations can't be that difficult, can they? Nothing you can't find and learn easily on the 'net, I'd guess.

Maybe 25% of the teams can really handle the math we already had, in my experience. Now we have a bunch more math, so this year should be interesting.

No change for B, as far as I can see. C has a bunch of new math.

Just as a PSA, there's now a really good set of statistics learning guides on the soinc website for disease detectives in case anyone is struggling with the new math.
