Integration bee is an event for the students who enjoy doing integral calculus.
Who like breaking their heads over a single integral for the entire day. Who like
coming up with different ways of solving the same integral using a different
technique every time. Students who want to establish their supremacy
amongst all the integrators in town. This event will test your hold over all the
methods of integration. It will require the student to be quick with their
thinking and also would test their creative cells and their skills as an innovator .
Round 1: This round will consist of a test paper consisting of indefinite and
definite integrals; a fixed amount of time will be given to every student to take
the test. The student will be expected to produce the answers of the given
integrals correctly by using any method or technique she/he finds suitable.
Marks will only be given to the student if the integral is exactly correct and no
other scenario would be considered. Remaining details of the test will be
declared on the day of the event. The top 16 students will be selected from
this round and will be proceeding to the final round.
Round 2: This is the round where your nerve and mettle will be tested. This is
the face-off round. In this round top 16 students will be pitched against each
other. It will be a one on one match. In a match a single integral would be
announced by the integration master and the person who solves it first would
get a point. In such a way 5 integrals would be asked in a single match. The
student who scores more points would win that match. In this manner the top
8 students will be selected, and they will go against each other. The format of
the match will be same as above. Out of the top 8 four will be selected for the
semi-finals. And the top four will go against each other to get a place in the
finals. Now in the final showdown between the two finalists the integration
master would announce seven integrals out of which the finalist who scores
more points would win. The integrals in this round would be both indefinite
and definite. The winner of the final match would be crowned as the grand
integrator and will be awarded with the grand prize.
