The WMMC is a mathematical modeling contest for undergraduate students organized by the math department of University of Wisconsin - La Crosse. Starting in October of 2009, the WMMC has challenged teams of regional students from various disciplines to apply their math skills to solve open ended real-world problems.
The 2013 contest was funded by generous gifts from UW-La Crosse Foundation, The Moody's Foundation, and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
Being the largest regional mathematical modeling competition, the WMMC aims to provide students an opportunity to
Result submission: in teams of three, students have 23 hours to pick one of two given problems and develop a mathematical model to solve it. Each team is required to write their proposed solution in a two-page summary. After submission of the summary, teams then have one additional (24th) hour to finalize a 10 minute presentation illustrating their ideas. Winners will be announced in two categories, one for the summary and one for the presentation.
Judging process: After all summaries have been received, panels of judges (consisting of faculty volunteers from UWL and other participating schools) read and score each summary according to the competition guidelines. All summaries are judged blind, meaning that judges only see the team ID numbers and and have no other information. Team presentations will be scored by the faculty judges as well as student participants.
