Is disease going to focus on population growth this year or has the topic changed? This is my first year in C division. Can anyone tell me how it is different from B?

It's food-borne illnesses this year, and C is not much different from B - just a little more math and research design.

Well in division B you get a binder for information and in division C you get a piece of paper. You shouldn't have too much to put on the sheet anyway though so it isn't that big of a deal. And yeah i'm fairly sure it's food borne illnesses

Oh on another note, anyone know if we're still going to have info sheets for the events this year? It was kind of annoying last year to be honest...

It was a dumb IN thing. B division got binders which was kind of pointless cause no one even knew what they should put in the binders. But anywho, anyone know if we are getting info sheets for the study events this year? I know no one knows for sure but... I thought I'd ask anyway

Most study events are probably getting info sheets- especially B division. I don't see any reason why you wouldn't have one.

Most events. I recall Anatomy 2 years ago had no resources allowed (except a calculator) and sometimes they do weird stuff, like when Env. Chem notesheets had to be handwritten, or how you were (are?) allowed a laptop for Astronomy.

Anatomy will probably not have a notes sheet this year, either. I am convinced that the only reason that they had it was that there was so much stuff to memorize.

I think the info sheets are kind of annyoing, you should understand the material well enough that you don't need one. Having said that I must admitt there have been times when thsoe info sheets have saved my life, like once last year when I spaced on how to do standard deviation. Anywho I'm fairly certain Anatomy will be allowed the same 8.5 by 11 in. two-sided page of notes... :(
