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.
In 2008, the University of Iowa hosted the first such regional contest, (called the Midwest Mathematical Modeling Competition, or MMMC), which involved 13 teams from 5 different schools. This year, in addition to the Carroll site, regional 24-MMCs will also be held at UW-La Crosse, the University of Iowa, Shippensburg University, and the University of Rhode Island.
