Final standings here.
Wow, one of the words she was given (and correctly spelled) was "quaternion"!ReplyDelete
Hmmm, what would be difficult words for a Math/CS-specific bee? Words like ergodic, plethysm, cobordism, and grassmannian aren't all that hard. Of course it would be more challenging if you had to give a definition...
Congratulations to my wife's college roommate's daughter!
