HIGH SCHOOL MATHEMATICAL CONTEST IN MODELING (HiMCM)
OUTSTANDING PAPERS

Editor’s Comments
This is our tenth HiMCM Special Issue. Since
space does not permit printing all of the four
National Outstanding papers, this special section
includes the summaries from two papers and
abridged versions of two. We emphasize that the
selection of these two does not imply that they
are superior to the other Outstanding papers. We
also wish to emphasize that the papers were not
written with publication in mind. Given the 36
hours that teams have to work on the problems
and prepare their papers, it is remarkable how
much was accomplished and how well written
many of the papers are.
