As far as I'm concerned, you're not allowed to bring in any programable device. The reason for this, is that you can sneak in extra answers/notes or get outside help. As far as I'm concerned, these include but are not limited to Phones, computers, tablets, certain watches, and Graphing calculators. Even if it doesn't say it in the rules, it's common courtesy to follow these rules in competition. It's best to bring a scientific calculator. I can't think of any equating in Road Scholar which would require more than a scientific calculator.NeilMehta wrote:SO_Wiz wrote:Does anyone know if we are allowed to bring graphing calculators to the competitions.
It doesn't say anything in the rules, although I've always brought a scientific and have observed the same with other teams.
Maybe try asking at https://www.soinc.org/road-scholar?
I've seen tests where it requires you to write the suffix along with the road name to get points, but I haven't seen any questions directly asking about this.snorrio wrote:Have any of you guys ever seen a test question pertaining to the types of roads? (ex. boulevards, avenues, lanes, etc)

The date is in the bottom right corner, and photo revision (if applicable) will be right under it.
