NEWS RELEASE

2017
20th Annual High School Mathematical Modeling Contest

The Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications (COMAP) is pleased to announce the results of the Twentieth Annual High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM). A total of 938 teams, with up to 4 students each, from 256 schools, competed. All teams worked at their own schools during a designated 36-hour period between October 27 and November 20, 2017. 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
