Integration Bee Competition

April 20 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Calling all mathletes! The CMU-Q Integration Bee Competition wants to put your mathematical integration skills to the test. If you are an undergraduate university student in Qatar with a background in calculus 2 (knowledge of all integration techniques), come solve challenging definite and indefinite integrals and face off against your peers.

The Integration Bee is an annual calculus competition pioneered in 1981 by Andy Bernoff, an applied mathematics student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Similar contests are administered every year in universities and colleges across the United States and many other countries.

By bringing this competition to Qatar, the CMU-Q Integration Bee aims to assess, promote and celebrate excellence in mathematics, while fostering a sense of community among individuals with a shared interest in mathematics. The Integration Bee also provides an opportunity for students to deepen their understanding of calculus and improve their problem-solving abilities through healthy competition with fellow participants.

 

 

When: Saturday, April 20, 2024

Time: 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Location: Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar

Who: Undergraduate university students in Qatar with a background in calculus 2 (knowledge of all integration techniques).

 

Rules and regulations:

The competition consists of two rounds, the qualifier round and the Playoffs round. The qualifier round consists of a 60 minutes written test of 20 integrals. Participants scoring in the top 16 will advance to the playoffs. In the event of a tie, a tie breaker is performed. The remaining participants are welcome to attend the playoffs and cheer for their peers.

The playoffs round consists of a four-round single elimination tournament. Competitors face off in solving integrals at the board. The integrals will be projected onto a screen along with a timer. The integrals become more challenging as the contest progresses.

Prizes await the winners and certificates of participation will be available for all participants!

Note : Only writing tools are allowed in the competition (notes, books, phones, calculators, or consulting other people are not allowed at any time).
