Section Meeting Saturday, March 24 1:303:30 pm Each school may
bring 34 undergraduate contestants who will compete individually for 1^{st},
2^{nd}, and 3^{rd} prizes! Please encourage your students to participate! Details below: Official
Rules for the 2007 Integration Bee Competition: 1.
Participants must correctly solve indefinite single variable integrals in the
time allotted. Techniques include: ·
Integrals or powers and trig
functions ·
Substitution ·
Integration by parts ·
Partial fraction decomposition ·
Trig substitutions ·
Integrals of powers of trig
functions ·
Integrals of hyperbolic functions ·
Completing the square ·
Elimination of radicals by
substitution 2. Participants
will take turns at the board. The first participant will have 2 minutes to evaluate an integral. If this
is not done correctly, the second participant will have 1 minute on the same integral. If he fails,
the third will have 30 seconds on
this integral. If all three fail then a new integral will be given to the
fourth contestant and the sequence repeats. If the integral is evaluated
correctly, the next participant gets a new integral and 2 minutes. 3. The
1^{st} round is expected to be double
elimination. If there are a large number of contestants, the 1^{st}
round will be single elimination. 4. Those
remaining after the 1^{st} round will participate head to head in a “lightning round”. Students in
the round will work on a problem for 2 minutes. Anyone not producing a correct
response will be eliminated. If everyone is eliminated in a round, a new
problem will be given. 5. Timers
and judges will be chosen from among faculty and graduate students in the
section. For information
contact: Ann Marie Harris harrisa@byui.edu Please let me know
how many students are participating so that we can be prepared. (Student
registration fees cover the cost to participate.)
