Bee Rules
1. Participants will be randomly ordered at the start of each round. Participants will take turns working integrals. The first participant will have 3 minutes to evaluate an integral. If this is not done correctly then the second participant will have 1 minute on the same integral. If they fail, the third (assuming that there are at least still 3 contestants) 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 3 minutes.
2. Each
participant is allowed one lifeline during the
competition.
They may call timeout and consult with anyone 3.
A
round is complete when each contestant in that round has had
the same
number of problems (usually 1) and
4. Each
participant answering an integral correctly receives one
point and is
allowed to advance to the next round.
5. Problems asked in one round will not be used in following
rounds.
6.
The
participant receiving the most points is the champion. *You may register via
