FOURTHED!!!!!ThirdedSecondedI wish there was a purely math event, not just Technical Problem Solving and Fermi Questions.
actually, if you feel really strongly about an event, you could write up the sample rules and submit it because they like reading about event ideas and they may consider it for a trial event.
That was a national trial event one year. I didn't do it at that tournament, but I did some practice ones just for the heck of it, I actually liked it a lot (and I'm not even a big math fan). It's a shame that is hasn't become a real event, it was pretty interesting. I imagine that it would be tough to grade though, since there are likely to be a lot of ties.There is actually a pure math, trial event in Texas called We've Got Your Number. In the event two partners are given two sets of four digits, and they have to create as many equations for numbers 1 to 100 as they can, using all of the numbers in the set and the allowed operators (Division B: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponentiation (non negative exponents only), and combining the digits to form a multi-digit number (like combining 4 and 5 to make 45), Division C: same as division b except you can also use logarithms and factorials).
Interesting….Fifth the math event.
But on topic:
