COMAP Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM)


The COMAP Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) is an annual international contest where teams of three undergraduate students use mathematical modeling to solve a real world problem. Teams have just four days to choose one of two posed problems, clarify and make necessary assumptions about the problem, develop and analyze a mathematical model, and compose their findings in a clear and coherent paper. A panel of judges then score the solution papers and prizes are awarded. In 2015, 7,636 teams representing institutions from seventeen countries competed in the contest.
