NEWS RELEASE

2012
15th Annual High School Mathematical Modeling Contest

The Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications (COMAP) is pleased to announce the results of the Fifteenth Annual High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM). A total of 518 teams, with up to 4 students each, from 85 schools, competed. All teams worked at their own schools during a designated 36-hour period between November 2nd and 19th, 2012. 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
