MathWorks Math Modeling Challenge (M3 Challenge) – Feb 24

Posted by Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) on January 10, 2023

MathWorks Math Modeling Challenge (M3 Challenge), a program of SIAM, is a free online contest for high school juniors and seniors and sixth form students. Teams of 3-5 students solve an open-ended problem about a real issue during their chosen 14 continuous hours over Challenge weekend. Teams work at the location(s) of their choice, in person or using online collaboration tools. Scholarships totaling $100,000+ or £75,000+ will be awarded in 2023; $1.75 million+ has been awarded to date. Additional awards are given for outstanding (and completely optional) code. M3 Challenge culminates annually with an in-person final event in New York City with all expenses paid for finalist teams.

Free access to math modeling handbooks, videos, and sample problems in the website’s “Resources” tab help teams prepare for success.
