The Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) is a multi-day mathematical modelling competition held annually in USA, during the first or second weekend in February, since by COMAP and sponsored by SIAM, the NSA, and INFORMS. Until , Outstanding Winner papers were published in The UMAP Journal. Institutional Memberships receive print copies of The UMAP Journal .. In addition to the MCM, COMAP also sponsors the Interdisciplinary Con. COMAP Contest Coordinator High School, COMAP Inc.

It is distinguished from coamp major mathematical competitions such as Putnam by its strong focus on research, originality, teamwork, communication and justification of results. At the beginning of the contest, teams have a choice between two problems.

Problem A involves a system that requires the use of continuous mathematics, and thus often involves concepts from geometry, physics, or engineering. Problem B involves a system mcj requires the use of discrete mathematics.

Ina “data insights” problem was added, where teams are given access to database files and tasked with using them to answer a question.

These problems tend to be open-ended, and are drawn from all fields of science, business, and mfm policy. Teams have 96 hours to research and submit their solutions in the form of a research paper.

During this time, they may consult any available references, but may not discuss their problem with anyone outside their teams. Thousands of international teams of three undergraduates compete to produce original mathematical papers in response to one of two modeling problems. Inthe percentage of teams from the People’s Republic of Imap reached a record high of From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
