Online Math Resources on the New COMAP.com

As you may have already noticed, we recently redesigned our website, comap.com, to make it easier to navigate and find the online math resources you’re looking for, when you want them. Aside from our revamped website and easier navigation, here is an overview of what you’ll find on the site.

Community Membership Options

Focused on creating math modeling resources and content for each and every student, we’ve modified our membership options to make it easier to join our math community and get access to an abundance of resources. If you’re an educator, a student, an industry professional, an educational institution, or if you’re just interested in applied problem solving and mathematical and interdisciplinary modeling, we have something for you.

Check out our memberships here, including our free option that provides access to numerous modeling modules, classroom materials, professional reports, and the current issue of Consortium at no cost.

Online Math Resources for Educators

We provide many resources free to our members through memberships as mentioned above. Some of our most popular resources that you will have access to when you join as a free member are listed below:

  • Mathematical Modeling Modules: This is a series of modules designed for teaching mathematics through the modeling of real-world phenomena. 
  • Consortium: Our expanded newsletter blends contemporary teaching activities with commentaries, articles, and contest results and information to bring the excitement of mathematical modeling to high school classrooms. 
  • GAIMME (Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Mathematical Modeling Education): Partnering with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), this report was created to motivate the educational community to make a place for mathematical modeling in curriculum, from pre-K through undergraduate levels.
  • UMAP: Our journal for undergraduate instructors and students of mathematics containing an eclectic mix of articles.

Math Blog

We are very excited to launch our very first math and math modeling blog. We cover everything including math contest information, math modeling ideas, online math resources that teachers can use immediately in the classroom, fun ways to see math in everyday life, math modeling contest information, and a lot more. 

Read our math blog here, and consider joining us as a guest author.

Advanced Search Capability

If you’re looking for a specific math modeling module, or a resource by grade level or math topic, you can use our advanced search tool to find the online math resource you need. Test out the search tool here.

Math Modeling Contests

As always, our website includes information on math modeling contests we hold during the year for middle school, high school, and undergraduate students. Learn more about our math contests through the links below: 

  • HiMCM/MidMCM: International math modeling contests designed to provide high school and middle school students with the opportunity to work as team members to engage and improve their modeling, problem solving, and writing skills. 
  • MCM/ICM: International math modeling contests for high school students and college undergraduates where teams of up to three students analyze, model, solve, and present solution reports to an open-ended application problem.
  • IM2C: International Mathematical Modeling Challenge promotes the teaching of mathematical modeling and applications across the globe. The IM2C provides students with the enriching experience of working as a member of a team in applying mathematics learned in school in order to solve a relevant real-world problem.

We would love to hear what you think about our new website and the online math resources we provide to everyone in the math community. Drop us a note here!
