1. For each of the measurements, and the final answer to the problem,
the team with the least difference between their answer and the
accepted value will be awarded 100 points.
2. Each team with a greater difference will score as follows:
Team Score =
TD = Team Difference; HD = High Difference; LD = Low Difference.
This formula gives 100 points to the best team, 25 points to the
weakest team, and the rest score points scaled linearly between
these limits.
The scores from the parts of the event will be added together to
give a maximum possible score of 200 points. A further 30 marks
will be awarded by the judges based on the processes involved in
reaching each answer.
