Mathematical Competition in Modeling (MCM) Spring 2012
The Department of Mathematical Sciences sponsored three teams in the 2012 Mathematical Competition in Modeling (MCM), which included nearly 3700 teams world-wide. This year’s teams were:
Team 1: Dongsub Lee, Tyler Stepanek, Katelyn Yeomans
Team 2: Katie Milhous, Jim Richardson, Will Trott
Team 3: Anthony Coggins, Rachel Smith, Tabitha Williford
The teams were able to select a problem from a list of three on February 9 and had until February 13 to write up their reports. This year’s problems are posted at: http://www.comap.com/undergraduate/contests/mcm/contests/2012/problems/
Teams 1 and 2 selected problem B and Team 3 selected problem A. The students worked diligently throughout the competition in meeting rooms assigned to each team in the Math-Physics Building.
This year’s results were outstanding. Team 3 received designation of Meritorious Winner placing them in the upper 10% percent of all participating teams. In fact, among teams from the U.S., Team 3 ranked third, which is a remarkable result. The other two teams were also successful and received a designation of Honorable Mention placing them in the upper third of all participating teams. Once again, Professor Goran Lesaja did an outstanding job as coordinator and coach for the competition.
