Honors Math Students Participate in Contest

Five teams of Collegiate School students in David Bannard's Honors Mathematical Modeling course participated in the 18th annual Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications (COMAP) High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM) from Nov. 4-21, 2016. The HiMCM is designed to provide students with an opportunity to work as a team in a contest that stimulates and improves their mathematical problem-solving proficiency and develops their writing skills. 
The competition took place with teams consisting of up to, but no more than, four students who worked on a real-world problem in a consecutive 36-hour period during the two-week timeframe. Students tackled two different problems in this competition cycle: structuring a national warehousing strategy and planning a successful triathlon.
