2016
19th Annual High School Mathematical Modeling Contest

The Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications (COMAP) is pleased to announce the results of the Nineteenth Annual High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM). A total of 840 teams, with up to 4 students each, from 190 schools, competed. All teams worked at their own schools during a designated 36-hour period between November 4-21, 2016. 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
