for the ICM is provided by a grant from the National Science
Foundation and COMAP. Additional support is provided by The
Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences
(INFORMS). COMAP's Mathematical Contest in Modeling and Interdisciplinary
Contest in Modeling are unique among modeling competitions in
that they are the only international contests in which students
work in teams to find a solution. Centering its educational
philosophy on mathematical modeling, COMAP uses mathematical
tools to explore real-world problems. It serves the educational
community as well as the world of work by preparing students
to become better informed-and prepared-citizens.
