2004
7th Annual High School Mathematical Modeling Contest

The Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications (COMAP) is pleased to announce the results of the Seventh Annual High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM). A total of 228 teams, with up to 4 students each, from 43 schools, competed. All teams worked at their own schools during a designated 36-hour period between November 5th and 22nd, 2004. Each high school team chose from two modeling problems offered and then constructed their solutions.

 

A Complete Results Report, with designations for all participants, is available in portable document format
