MATH & CS Department Seminar: The Mathematical Contest in Modeling
The Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) is an international contest in which teams of three undergraduates each use their own ideas to develop solutions to a real world problem. Once the contest begins, teams have 96 hours to research and submit their solution in the form of a written report. Team members are permitted to consult any references they would like (e.g., books, websites), but they cannot discuss the problem with anyone else. All submissions are judged, and noteworthy reports receive special recognition.
