Future Problem Solving Procedures

This year we plan to include FPS as part of our tournament.  Teams competing in FPS must register before the deadline.  Each school is limited to one FPS team to allow for processing and scoring of booklets.  On Monday December 3, 2018, the FPS future scene will be e-mailed to all teams competing.  Each school will hold a 2 hour FPS session on Monday or Tuesday.  Then each school will scan and email or fax booklets to ECMS by 11:00 a.m. CST Wednesday, December 5, 2018.  Our FPS coordinator will then collect the booklets, prepare them for scoring, and send booklets to schools to be scored.  Each school will be responsible for scoring booklets other than their own.  Scoresheets will then be faxed or scanned and emailed to ECMS where the scores will be recorded in ASAP.  We would like to have the scores by 8:00 p.m. CST Friday, December 7, 2018, but will accept them until 9:00 a.m. CST on December 10, 2018.

Old Christmas Classic – Floyd Central HS – MG/HS – 1/5/2019

Where:           Floyd Central High School

When:            January 5, 2019—Registration is from 7:45 to 8:30 AM EST

Cost:               $75.00 per team

Old Christmas is the traditional day when Appalachian families celebrated Christmas, on January 6. This is still marked around the world in a number of other ways—the traditional 12th day of Christmas, the Feast of the Epiphany…but for traditional mountain families, it was a holdover from the days when their European forbears refused to switch from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar, which cut eleven days from the year. Most families do not celebrate Old Christmas anymore, but many across our aging population can tell you about when they did. So, why not celebrate it with a good, old-fashioned academic team tournament? We will offer a few small touches nodding to the celebration of Old Christmas, and include some trivia from the holiday within our quick recall matches. A few articles about Old Christmas are listed here for your studying pleasure.

Written Assessment

Each participating team may enter 3 students in each of the following written assessment areas: arts and humanities, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. There will be only one round of written assessment. You will be provided with copies of each assessment after the match.

 

Quick Recall Procedures

Quick recall matches will begin at 10:00 AM.  Three preliminary rounds will be played before lunch to establish rankings for the championship round. The teams with the better preliminary records will meet teams with poorer records. All teams are guaranteed four rounds of quick recall.  Match rules will follow Governor’s Cup guidelines.

 

All schools participating must provide at least one moderator.  We encourage all schools to bring a qualified quick recall judge. Also, additional persons to act as scorers and spotters would be greatly appreciated. Each school should provide a minimum of two proctors for the written assessment block. Also, each school should bring at least one working buzzer system; additional systems are appreciated.

 

Awards

Students placing in the top 5 in their respective written assessment area will receive an individual achievement award. The top four quick recall teams will also receive an award, as will the overall winner of the classic (points will be awarded for placement similar to Governor’s Cup guidelines).
