Actually any old in this context is an idiom that emphasizes the word "any".

FYI, we've put up some incredibly impressive (IMHO) resources on the official event webpage: https://www.soinc.org/circuit-lab-c Also, starting on Sunday night Oct 7th, I believe one of the national event supervisors is going to start hosting a regular Youtube livestream where he'll go over a section and be able to answer questions you might have.

Just to give a bit more detail on what Chalker referred to in the last post:

Russ Burleson, former Maryland State Director and longtime National Event Supervisor, will be hosting weekly live coaching sessions broadcast on YouTube. These sessions will take place on Sunday evenings starting on Sunday, October 7th at 4:00 PM Central Time and continue for the next 15 weeks.

Participants in the Live session are requested to review that week's material in advance and have their parents' permission if they are under 18 years of age.

Here is the link to the first session.

Does anyone know what math Div. B will have to know?

Just algebra maybe some simple trigonometry, but definitely no calculus.

Calculus isn't supposed to be in C div anyway

Calculus is awesome.

You won't need it.

Some problems are easier to solve with calculus

Although I would get an overview of what they are.

You guys are lucky. That's one less topic my student will crush you guys on. But it doesn't matter, my students will beat you guys anyway. Scrubs smh.

uh. Good for you.

Inductance is as feasible as a topic as capacitance... But I think having both on the test means RLC circuits.
...I really loved this event back in 2013 and it helped me towards becoming an EE
