Moody's Mega Math Challenge

Moody's Mega Math (M3) Challenge is an Internet-based, math modeling competition for high school students. The contest is free and open to high school juniors and seniors in 45 US states and D.C. Working in teams of three to five, participants must solve an open-ended, applied problem focused on a realistic issue-in 14 hours. Scholarships totaling $125,000 toward the pursuit of higher education are awarded to the top teams. The real-world focus of the competition introduces students to applied math as a powerful problem-solving tool and, potentially, as a viable and exciting profession. Challenge weekend is set for February 28 and March 1, 2015. Registration opens in November at the website below.

Complete details, sample problems, rules,and archives of previous Challenges are available at: M3Challenge.siam.org
