Next Up: The Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM)® and The Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling (ICM)® February 1 — February 5, 2024
Next Up: JMM: January 3-6, 2024, San Francisco CA
COMAP is proud to be a JMM partner. Be sure to visit COMAP at booth 408 to find out about our modeling contests, membership options and publications. COMAP staff will be in attendance to answer all your questions.
Centered around mathematical modeling, most from an interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary perspective, COMAP resources are academically rigorous and engaging for teachers and students.
Powered by COMAP content, MATHmodels.org goes beyond our contests to make applied mathematics and modeling a year-round activity with articles, webinars, problems with solutions, and more.
COMAP’s international modeling contest opportunities at the middle school, high school, and undergraduate levels challenge teams of students to solve a real-world application problem, present their solution, and win recognition.
COMAP provides educators and students a vast array of resources for teaching, learning, professional development, and contest participation. Resources are multidisciplinary, academically rigorous, and fun.
COMAP is blogging! Check out our array of blogs addressing applied mathematics, math and interdisciplinary modeling, math and STEM education, and more.

The Ham Sandwich Theorem isn't about sandwiches, per se. It's actually a principle in geometry that can apply to a whole range of situations.
So, what is applied math? Applied mathematics is the bridge between mathematical theory and practical application.
We have successfully concluded the 2023 High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM©) and the Middle Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MidMCM).
The mission of COMAP – The Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications - is to improve mathematics education with an emphasis on increasing student proficiency in mathematical modeling.
Since 1980, COMAP has worked with educators, students, businesses, and industry to create learning environments where mathematics is used to investigate and model real issues in our world.
COMAP develops curriculum resources, professional development programs, and contest opportunities that are multidisciplinary, academically rigorous, and fun for educators and students. COMAP's educational philosophy is centered around mathematical modeling: using mathematical tools to explore real-world problems.
