“We really appreciate the way Dr. Ng has supported the Integration Bee for eight straight years,” said Cristi Chang, associate professor of mathematics. “Without that support, this event would not be nearly as successful.”
There were 10 competitors and about 20 spectators for the competition, which lasted six rounds. Each round lasted five minutes, and each competitor was given the same equations to solve. The championship round went to Weidensee, who solved his equation just before Nichols.
Prior to the competition, competitors and spectators enjoyed a pizza party.
