Number of papers received: 6
Reviewing committee: epsilon

Author(s) of paper(s) chosen for publication:
[t-anderson], s-lodden
Comments: Most people in part A attempted to evaluated for sin that is
equal to actual numbers, but did this incorrecly. Neither of the chosen
papers attempted this, so their answer was correct, but we put that the
papers needed to be revised, and evaluate for the even and odd cases of n.
Most people did part B correctly, however they did not notice the
shortcut, that the solution was in the Fourier Series format. One person
did notice this, but used it incorrectly.
GRADER'S COMMENT: The only flaw in the papers of Todd and Susan is that
they didn't evaluate sin(n*Pi/2). The other four tried to evaluate it but
got it wrong! I don't think such a small thing deserves a revision.
Also, there is not enough difference to warrant publishing both papers,
and Susan's is slightly better explained and organized.
