Each winter, college students from all over the world participate in the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM), which is conducted by the Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications (COMAP). The MCM contest requires students to work in teams of three on complex, open-ended problems for four days and then submit a carefully written report summarizing the team's approach and results. The submitted reports are then judged and recognized as: Unsuccessful, Successful Participant, Honorable Mention, Meritorious, Finalist, or Outstanding Winner. More information is available at the COMAP website:

As part of recruitment efforts for the February 2014 MCM Contest, Dr. Jackson and Dr. Johnson will be having a mini-mathematical modeling contest during the Math/CS Club meeting this week. Students will be presented with two problems and asked to work in teams of three on one of the problems presented. After a short period of work, each group will elect a spokesperson to describe which problem the team selected, why the problem was chosen, and how the team would attack the problem.  Prizes will be awarded to the teams with the best presentations.

Students are also invited to contact us directly if they would like more information about the MCM contest. We are faculty in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
