Description 

Area high school Calculus teachers are invited to bring some of their best and brightest Calculus minds to the second annual UW-BSC Calc Fest held here on the UW-Baraboo/Sauk County campus.  On the day of the event students will face a written competition which is set by a panel of professors from our 13 UW colleges campuses . All questions will be from AP Calculus A-B material. Questions 1-10 will be at the AP calculus exam standard but questions 11-15 will be more challenging, providing  the students an opportunity to test their problem solving skills at a higher level. While the  written competition is going on , we will also provide a professional development opportunity for the high school faculty. Last year Professor Premadasa  conducted a training session on the free mathematical software SAGE. After the written competition, student  teams participate in the fun filled  Jeopardy like game show Calc Jeopardy, which is fun as well as productive ! There are prizes for participants… Students absolutely love this part !
