Join a COMAP Team

The COMAP Mathematical Contest in Modeling is an annual international contest for high school students and college undergraduates. There are two problems, Problem A (continuous) and Problem B (discrete), and teams of three students have from 8pm Thursday night until 8pm the following Monday to work on the problem of their choice.

Typically, around 800 teams representing 250 institutions from eleven countries submit solution papers. JMU has had teams entering the competition since 1990. In that time, we have had four Honorable Mention and four Meritorious awards. Our best ever result was achieved in 2001 when JMU was the only institution to have two teams each do a different problem and both be awarded Meritorious.
