Compete for Cash in the Tournament of Anti-derivatives

The Mathematics division is holding the eighth annual Tournament of Anti-Derivatives on May 25 at 2:40 p.m. in BHL 108.

Students competing in the tournament will solve integrals and antiderivatives to pass a qualifying round and a single-elimination playoff, in hopes of becoming the antiderivative champion. Prizes are $40, $30 and $20 cash for the three best finishers.

In order to compete, students must enlist a member of the faculty, staff or administration to sponsor them and donate three items which will be given to the Clark County Food Bank Coalition. Sponsors will receive a $5 bookstore gift certificate if the student places in the top-three.

“We have always worked with the Clark County Food Bank Coalition,” said Mathematics professor Kristine Barker. “When we first started TOAD, we thought it would be a great way to both drum up interest in math and provide help to families in need via the food bank.”

The entry form can be found on the Mathematics division website and must be submitted before noon on May 24 to the Math office in BHL 110.

Free snacks will be provided and spectators are welcomed for the final playoff round.
