Sure, no problem. This file has everything you need! It's pretty big, though, so it might take a while to download.Can someone give me all of the answers that are going to be on the test so that I do not have to do any work?
Also, make sure you refresh your knowledge on chemistry, have a list of frequencies of various devices, list of all possible calendars from around the world of all times (you could see questions like: "When Sweden converted to Julian calendar?" or "How many days were in a month in Japan in 16th century?"), great distance formula, and many-many other topics that you may think have nothing to do with time. Basically, your best bet is to have tons of information that you think is related to time and then ton of information that you think is not related to time. Ask your partner to do the same independently. Chances are you will end up with a different set (at least that how it worked out for me last year) and then compile.Seriously, though, to everyone who's asked for general help with this event: not knowing what to study is probably the most challenging part of this event. Having a test on time is ridiculous--it's a huge topic. You'll definitely see a little physics, especially kinematics. (They seem to have a nasty habit of assuming any equation with t in it is appropriate for the test.) You'll also get tested on the history of time, identifying who did what and when. Finally, you'll see a lot of stuff about current systems of time (sidereal, solar, GMT/UTC, etc) and how to convert between them.
genesys, i don't think anyone can give you more info than we already did. The questions don't usually repeat (unless event supervisors reuse the test from last year), and, if you go through this thread, you will see the topics that most of us encountered on tests. From here on, you have to do some of your own legwork. This is as straight answer as it goes.what are the most told questions in the Its about time event? please give me straight answer. thanks:)
Take a look at my post and those following it--it details what you'll likely see. Unfortunately, each and every test is unique. The Science Olympiad organization doesn't provide standardized tests to event coordinators; instead, it's up to each invitational, regional, and state director to create their own. Thus, your best bet is to do as much research as possible on the topics mentioned above. I have a binder of almost 100 pages of information--it's just not something that we can explain to you over these forums. Sorry!what information did you already give me???:?
Haha, it's not that the volume of the device has to be 80cc or less. Rather, the entire device has to fit inside an 80cm cube, or a cube with dimensions 80cm x 80cm x 80cm. You'll probably find that a tad easier to work with.Does anyone know if it is really 80cm^3 for the size of the time device?
80cm^3 is like 4cm *4cm*4cm
isn't that really small?
the ones in this video is so much larger than that
