This paper demonstrates a sufficient understanding of the first contest problem, but the competitors need to further enhance their math skills in order to develop an effective model for this problem.
Using normal distribution, this model solves the problem in an easily understandable manner but lacks proper analysis. Better explanation and organization could largely improve this paper.
With the unique computational Monte Carlo Simulation approach, this paper solves both of the problems effectively with only a few minor flaws. However, some sections can be further elaborated to improve this paper.
This paper showed explicit details on how the solution is arrived at. It would be a good idea to go further in depth with the explanations by using only relevant examples and information. Fix description formats and errors, and the result will be a more polished submission.
The paper is neatly organized with all necessary parts which leave an excellent first impression. Both of the models use a theoretical approach to the problems and derive the solution from pure theory, clearly demonstrating strong mathematical knowledge in probability distributions and spherical geometry.
