Buchholz High School January 15, 2022 Invitational

 

Buchholz is EXCITED to host the first on site ONLY Mu competition in almost 2 years.

 

We will continue our tradition of not requiring anyone to work our competition. We will handle jobs internally. That said because of the new team scoring format I would like some veteran sponsors who like scoring the team round to email me directly and volunteer for that.

 

Other than our cost for trophies all proceeds will go to Joey’s Wings. It is a children’s cancer foundation

 

 

No limit on the number of students taking the Individual test.

If students are not on the team, they may take the Open test as their other round.

                                     (No student should be sitting around during either testing round.)

 

1.  Postmarked deadline for the competition is Dec 18, 2021.  Mail your registration, check made out to Buchholz High School to Buchholz High School, 5510 NW 27th Ave. Gainesville Fl, 32606    Attn: Will Frazer.

 

2. We will only seat one team per division, except for Statistics and Algebra 1 (we will seat as many 3 or 4-person teams as possible, so register early).  Extra students after these teams, will be seated together for practice.

For the extra “non-team” members we will have a THETA (Geometry and Algebra 2) Open test and an ALPHA   (Pre-Calculus and Calculus) Open test.

These questions come directly from past Mu tests. Trophies will be given.

These tests are FREE, BUT you must register the number of tests needed online.   

DO NOT count students that are sitting for the team-round, they cannot be on the team AND take the OPEN test.

 

3. Please bring your highlighted enrollment list, downloaded from www.floridamao.org with the participating competitors’ names and ID#s highlighted.

 

4. Testing will start PROMPTLY at 9am so be in your room by 8:55 am.  We will have Individual tests for

Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Calculus and Statistics.

 

5. Team round. We are field testing a new scoring format for this competition and the February State-wide as well. If this format is popular, it will most likely be adopted by the FAMAT board for future events. 

For the team scoring format, each part of the four part questions are worth 2 points each for a total of 8 points.

If a school gets all four parts correct, the additional bonus point structure is 12-8-4-0.  This bonus will slide if a school does not answer all four parts correct in the first minute (so 12-8-4 if the first team does it in the 2nd minute, 12-8 if it happens in the 3rd minute and 12 if it happens in the 4th minute).

 

We have 3 goals for our competition:

1.     Mid level tests. Not too easy or too hard

2.     Awards ceremony that starts and finishes on time

3.     Tests that are nearly free from accepted disputes

These are the 3 things we seek when we travel and compete.
