Resources for Math Modeling Contests:

Check out the past problems from a local contest at Brown University, and the reports submitted by some of the students to both the local and the international contest (the Report links) to help you prepare for the contest.

To prepare for the national contest, check out reports for the international MCM contest from teams at University of Washington.

If you want more advice to better prepare for the local and national contests, please visit the COMAP Website.

Finally, please check out this rubric before the contest as it will help you get an idea of how your responses will be graded during the local contest!
