## About The Class

Math Modeling at MAMS is taught by Mr. Regele. The class takes a different approach than most traditional math classes and focuses on problem solving strategies. The class is presented through a series of tougher, competition-style problems to build application skills behind the mathematics. As a part of Math Modeling, many of the projects in this class are presented through abstract problems that involve making necessary assumptions and creating our own strategy for solving the problem.

### HiMCM

As a part of the class, MAMS takes part in a 36-hour math competition, known as HiMCM (International High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling). In this contest, teams of 4 work to create a solution to a large, abstract math modeling problem that requires defining your interpretation of the problem, creating a strategy to solve the problem, and effectively presenting a solution. I worked with Henry Liu, Svabhu Govindaraj, and Amith Chintalapati to create our paper. This was truly a 36-hour math competition as we worked all day and while it was tiring, it was also a blast and a great experience. Below is our team’s paper on the problem.

### Mathematica

Mathematica is a computational software that we use frequently for projects in the class. The software allows us to make calculations and work with datasets in a mathematical manner that can then be used in the presentation of a solution to a problem. One such problem involved finding the optimal cost for football tickets to maximize revenue, given some preliminary data about people’s most likely purchasing habits.
