The International Mathematical Modeling Challenge (IM2C)® promotes the teaching of mathematical modeling and applications in high school classrooms across the globe based on the firm belief that students and teachers need to experience the power of mathematics to better understand, analyze, and solve real–world problems. The IM2C is a true team competition and a true challenge. The IM2C provides students with the enriching experience of working as a member of a team in applying mathematics learned in school in order to solve a relevant real-world problem. Countries/Regions organize local regional rounds in the spring with two teams from each participating country/region advancing to the international round of judging in May.

There are no news items for this competition at this time.

The International Mathematical Modeling Challenge (IM2C)®, an international contest for high school students, challenges teams of students to analyze, model, solve, and present solution reports to an open-ended application problem. Students form teams with up to four members and choose five (5) consecutive days between mid-March and early-May to download the problem, work together to address and model the problem, and submit an electronic solution.

Each participating country/region conducts regional judging to choose two teams that advance to the international round of judging. A distinguished group of international educators and professionals then read and judge papers. International judging occurs in May and June with results posted by early July. Levels of awards include Successful Participant, Honorable Mention, Meritorious, or Outstanding Winner.
