High School Contest

High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM) offers students the opportunity to compete in a team setting using mathematics to present solutions to real-world modeling problems.

To print a copy of the 2016 HiMCM brochure in pdf format click here.

Additional support provided by the
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM),
the Mathematical Association of America (MAA),
and the Institute for Operations Research and
Management Sciences (INFORMS).



Now available: View all the National Finalist and Outstanding papers in their entirety.
This will make a great addition to any modeling class or can be used for contest preparation.

Each HiMCM CD-ROM includes:

The Modeling Resource CD Rom

The Modeling Resource CD-Rom offers mathematical modeling problems, sample solutions, and other resources suitable for instructors and students in modeling courses, advisors and team members in modeling competitions, and those who want to make mathematics courses more relevant. The problems are taken from the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM), the Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling, (ICM), the High School Contest in Modeling (HiMCM), and the Consortium column Everybody's Problems.  Learn More

The International Mathematical Modeling Challenge, IM2C.

Working with educational leaders around the world, the search is on for the countries whose high school student modeling teams are deemed best of the best.  Learn More
