25 sequences of numbers, shapes, concepts, patterns need to be
recognized and properly appended in a 10 minute limit.
||3 members per school acting
as a relay team
||The first member takes the question sheet,
writes the next element of the first sequence and passes the sheet
to the next member. The second member does the next sequence and so
on as a cyclic relay. A member may pass if he/she feel that he/she
cannot complete the sequence and the sequence may be attempted by
the next member. A sequence may only be skipped after each member
has had a chance at its solution.
||At the end of 10 min. the sheets will be
collected and quickly marked for the best score. In the event of a
tie a sudden-death overhead projected sequence will be presented to
the tied teams simultaneously. The first team to indicate that they
know the correct solution will be allowed to respond within 10 seconds
of indicating their intention. That team will win if correct and lose
||Q1. Does ICUE still have a maximum of 3 participants per team as stated above?:
A1: The schools in each session can divide up into two teams of 3 and we will take the total score for the two teams. For example CCH Team A which has 6 players will split into two teams of 3. If they teams score 12/20 and 15/ 20 then I will record 27 as their score.
