30 Selecting Teams Variety of mathematical knowledge and backgrounds (Calculus, Statistics, Programming, Physics) Group Dynamics are everything Ask who they would choose not to work with

31 Hands Off During the Contest If they work at one of the students homes, make sure the parents understand the rules Organize your paper before you begin. Have computers and software set up and ready to go. Have internet access and references (Basic Stat) available Dissuade students from all-nighters
