I was a member of the team that went to the local competitions in Potsdam. I found out tonight that our team was selected to compete in the Regional competition in Rochester, New York on October 31st. I am proud of our team. Nice work Sandy, Henk, and Matt (who was there in spirit). Special thanks go out to our coaches: Dr. Constantinides and Alex Vallée.
The competition consisted of seven problems. We had five hours to solve them and access to only one computer.
I will post the pdf with the problems we encountered during preliminaries once it is available. If I have free time, I will write a post discussing our solutions, what we could have done better, and what we were prepared for.
Now it’s back to studying for midterms (four left) and putting off assignments.
