2nd Annual International Mathematical Modeling Challenge (IM2C)
We are pleased to announce the results of the first annual International Mathematical Modeling Challenge (IM2C). There were 23 countries/regions invited to participate in the 2016 IM2C and after the national/regional selection round, 40 teams competed in the international round of judging. All teams worked at their own schools during a 5 day period between March 16th and May 9th, 2016. Each team was given a modeling problem
and then constructed their solutions. This year’s problem Record Insurance asked the teams to design a model for the effective planning for payments and insurance for record-breaking performances at a track and field meet.
A Complete Results Report, with designations for all participants, is available in portable document format (PDF).

All schools are to be commended for their efforts. The judges were impressed with all the teams’ creativity and ingenuity in mathematical modeling and in their ability to explain their strategies and problem-solving techniques in clear terms. Each participant is a true winner. For additional contest information, contact IM2C at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Initial funding for planning and organizational activities was provided by IM2C co-founders and co-sponsors - The Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications (COMAP), a not-for-profit company dedicated to the improvement of mathematics education and by NeoUnion ESC Organization in Hong Kong (SAR).
