Coaches’ COVID Info

Welcome to online math team.   We anticipate this format being our new normal for the foreseeable future.  If/when a change back to in-person matches is made, everyone will be notified.  This new online format will require you to assign each student on the A-team to three rounds as usual. However, now there will additionally be three different versions of each round and you will need to assign a different version to each student. This information must be submitted to Michael Krupnikoff one day before the start of the meet; he will provide a Google spreadsheet on which you can enter this information.  Changes can be made up until the start of the match, but please make those on an emergency basis only. B-teams will be included in FCML this year, but there will be no need to submit a roster as only A-team scores will be recorded; B-teams will be given access to a single version of each round.  A- and B-team members will receive unofficial round scores when the graded forms are released soon after the match. 

Please set up video conferencing (Zoom, Google Meet, or similar) for your team to do the rounds so that you can proctor your students. By 4:15 PM on the day of the match you will receive an email with a link to a document that contains links to all the versions of all the rounds.  At 4:29 PM, please send this to your team and then proctor this portion of the match for 30 minutes. Students must submit their rounds before 5:00:59. 

At 5:09 PM, please email the link to the team round to your A-team for the match. Your B-team may also take part in the Team Round, so long as the two teams are on separate video conferences.

Coaches will have cell numbers of a support team for any assistance they might need during the match.  Arbiters will be available by email and cell phone as well after the match. All arbitration must be completed by 6:30 PM. 

PLEASE NOTE:  A MAJOR CHANGE TO THE FORMAT IS THAT STUDENTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO USE A CALCULATOR AND THE INTERNET.
