The Mathematical Contest in Modeling


The Mathematical Contest in Modeling is an international college-level competition in applied mathematics in which teams of up to three students must analyze, clarify, and propose solutions to open-ended problems. Students spend an intense weekend in early February analyzing their problem and writing their solution paper. In recent years, more than 2,000 teams from throughout the world have participated. The faculty judging team for the MCM has included OSU's Professor Marvin Keener since its inception.

Solution papers in the MCM are sorted by the judges into four categories. The very small, select group of top papers are designated as Outstanding Achievement Winners. In 1992, OSU's team of Mike Oehrtman, Jennifer Wilken Williams, and Kevin Yoder were designated as Outstanding Achievement Winners, and a plaque in our trophy case honors their success.
