We are expecting basic rxns for stoichiometry followed by determining the rate laws for the kinetics part (which would mean varying the quantities of the reactants).

Thank you. That was quite helpful.

So even in Division C I'm going to have to ask all the supervisors about sigfigs?



If you follow the rules above, I can't imagine a situation where you'd be penalized. So I'm not sure that you'd need to explicitly ask about it everytime, although you always are allowed to.


When in doubt, just use three lol
But if you really want to, no harm in being that annoying kid that asks all these clarification questions. Better safe than sorry, right?

Just wondering, what kinds of things are people putting in their binders? Because as far as I can tell the event is mostly calculation, aside from some of the qualitative analysis stuff and reaction prediction....

2014 events: WIDI, Geomapping, Materials Science, Food Science
2013 events: WIDI, Mousetrap Vehicle, Heredity, Food Science, Metric Mastery

random trivia? and notes and charts too, I guess. We don't even use 90% of it half the time but oh well :)

I put in a copy of the periodic table in case the proctor forgets to give everyone a copy (which is too common in GA) and an activity series chart in case something comes up on the test that's not supposed to be there. That's about all I use.

I plan on doing this event for the first time and I am curious about what I am allowed to bring into the testing room?

For the 2015 event, students were allowed to bring safety equipment, a calculator, a binder, and writing implements. Event supervisors would provide everything else for the lab.
