**Competition Specific Information**

- This year’s mathematics bowl questions cover content from a variety of freshman and sophomore courses in undergraduate mathematics such as linear algebra, calculus, basic statistics and mathematics history.
- Teams will have 60 seconds to submit an answer for each question. The timer will initiate as soon as the question is displayed.
Correct answers are worth a maximum of 3 points, and that score is reduced based on how much time it takes to submit the answer. An incorrect answer, or no answer, will award 0 points.

- The score for each correctly answered question is calculated by 3*((60-t)/60) where ‘t’ is the amount of time in seconds it takes for a team to submit a correct answer.
- Only one answer can be submitted, no replacement. Be sure of your initial submission.
