Contest Overview
The CVMMC is a regional math contest that gives undergraduate students the opportunity to apply their math skills to real world problems. In teams of three, students will have 23 hours to develop and test a model and write a one-page summary of their findings; an additional (24th) hour will be available in order for teams to finalize a 10 minute presentation explaining their result. Soon after completing their presentation, teams will present their findings to other student CVMMC participants. The event will conclude with an award ceremony that will highlight the work of winning teams as determined by students and advisors.
