Comap's Mathematical Contest in Modeling

Ages:High School, Undergraduate

Type:Submission

Categories:Mathematics, STEM

Scope:National

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The study of mathematics as a subject in its own right may have started with Pythagoras, but people have been counting as a basic necessity of everyday life for thousands of years. It follows that mathematics was invented to help us understand and manage the world around us.   What's in it for you? It's a chance to challenge your brain, solve a real world math problem, and get recognition for it on an international stage. It's an excellent opportunity to develop your interpersonal skills through teamwork. It's also an impressive resume credential and an advantage when applying for internships. Added Attraction: A chance for your top US team to win the Two Sigma $10,000 Scholarship Award, and more.   What's in it for your school? The recognition and prestige of being part of COMAP's 34th annual international event. Meaningful preparation for the real world of problems, politics and financial constraints. Impetus and justification for more applied courses' a blueprint for your schools future.   COMAP's Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) is Real World Mathematical Modelingwhere research, analytics and applied intelligence reign along with less-quantifiable factors like timing and luck. Think you're up to it?   Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM), an international contest for high school students and college undergraduates. It challenges teams of students to clarify, analyze, and propose solutions to open-ended problems. The contest attracts diverse students and faculty advisors from over 900 institutions around the world.   The Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling (ICM), is an extension of the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM). It is designed to develop and advance interdisciplinary problem-solving skills as well as competence in written communication.

High School and Undergraduate students form teams. Each team may choose any one of the six problem choices and should submit a solution to only one problem. The teams review the problem statements and then create a mathematical model for the solutions. MCM Problem A (continuous) MCM Problem B (discrete) MCM Problem C (data insights) ICM Problem D (operations research/network science) ICM Problem E (environmental science) ICM Problem F (policy)

Solutions are evaluated and scored by mathematicians.  Judging will be completed in March and the results will be posted on April 29, 2018. The Solution  Papers will be recognized as Disqualified, Unsuccessful, Successful Participant, Honorable Mention, Meritorious, Finalist, or Outstanding Winner.
