2013 Integration Bee
The department held its second Integration Bee on Tuesday, October 15, 2013. The winners were
- Thomas Abercrombie (1st place)
- Robert McGrath (2nd place)
- Candice Bardwell (3rd place)
Congratulations to all three!
In an integration bee, students try to solve integrals in order to proceed to the next round. Some integrals are routine textbook problems; some are tricky; others, downright wicked. The first round is multiple-choice, but tricky questions and the option of "None of the above" can make it devilishly difficult!
Our integration bee is inspired by the one held annually by the Louisiana/Mississippi Section of the Mathematical Association of America. We adapted it with our own variations, including bizarre bonus questions.
