Montana Mathematical Modeling Challenge

The Montana Mathematical Modeling Challenge (MMMC) is an intense, 24 hour contest for undergraduate students. Teams are presented with two open ended, real world problems and have one day to choose and solve one of them using any non-sentient resources they can find.

This year's contest will include 13 teams representing four schools from three different states!  Participating schools are Carroll College, Montana State University, Washington State University and the University of Idaho.
