Information from Various Competitions
In the Los Angeles Regional competition, all problems were physics - based and very difficult. Calculus was required as were extensive knowledge of formulas. True to its name, problem solving ability is highly recommended. One of the problems was a proof-type problem.
At the Cypress-Falls Invitational (Texas), all problems involved measurement and basic formulas, such as area of a prism.
The 2010 national tournament featured various stations including calculating the periods of pendulums, measuring the volume of a 5 pointed foam star, measuring the volume of a block of wood with a hole drilled out of it, calculating the acceleration of a ball bearing, and more.
