This year MLWGS had four teams recognized as ‘Finalist’ in the HiMCM math modeling contest. The Finalist designation puts those four teams in the top 8% of the 938 teams competing worldwide giving us the best results that we’ve had in five years.
In this year’s competition teams chose either to tackle a problem coordinating a cluster of 500 drones or a problem developing a ski resort based on a topographic map. Teams were given 36 hours to write papers detailing their approach to their chosen problem. A day-and-a-half’s worth of exhausting effort resulted in papers that averaged around 15 pages in length. Thanks go out to all twelve of the teams that participated.
The four Finalist teams were:
Team 7946: Eric Campbell, Isabella Dula, Daniel Hall, Anuj Kotak
Team 7938: Evan Donnellan, Will Larson, Tyler Stromberg, Nathan Taminger
Team 7939: Angela Chen, Lauren Hall, Hannah Lee, Abigail Olson
Team 7937: Veronika Matysiak, Taha Shaikh, Yashodhara Varma
Congratulations to all our teams and their sponsor, Mr. Benesh.
