I don't know if this would become popular but the idea is that if I have around 8 people we can get on a google plus, with two teams. I will give questions which a high school student should be able to do pertaining to Maths, Physics, and maybe some other related sciences. Like a tv show. There can be ten questions, with one major questions if the teams tie. :P

I thought this would be kinda fun. I know we have a alot of people here who are good at Maths/Phys instantly the names of Enji, chui, Subutai, Sargon, Envisage, and of course shakuntala pop into mind. Truthfully bluesteel is a published mathematician.

A possible question could be:

Evaluate the integral from one to infinity for 1/1+x^2 dx.

Or

A radioactive source emits B-particles. It has an activity of 2.8x10^7 Bq. Estimate the number of B-particles emited in a time interval of 2.0 minutes. State one assumption made.

This probably won't happen but I thought it would be a pretty cool idea. We could host in on Google and record it. Like a live competition, and members could beep if they get the answer. :P Like a light online game show or something. Anywho anyone up for it?

Lol Ajab this is a debate website not a math site XD

Though if you want to get into math the AoPS community is nice and does a bunch of math and science stuff http://www.artofproblemsolving.com...

If this had to deal with Chemistry then I would be all over it, but Physics is a bit out of my league.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I think Quizbowl stuff would be better suited here. I can even help with organizing it (Holds 13 awards for it).

I'm only in Pre-Calc, and only thirteen, so...I don't think I'll be good enough. XD

And I suck at science. :3

I got muted for saying WTF. Or fack you. Or are you pulling these answers out of your as5.

As far as I can tell, this seems like differential calculus. >.>

...damn rating decay.
