NEWS RELEASE

November 2001
4th Annual High School Mathematical Modeling Contest

The Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) is pleased to announce the results of the Fourth Annual High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM). A total of 212 teams with up to 4 students each, competed from 92 schools. All HiMCM teams, worked at their own schools during a designated 36-hour period from November 7 to 20, 2001. Each high school team chose one of the two modeling problems offered and then constructed their solutions.

 

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