Colby Math Teams are Winners
Two Colby teams were named as “Meritorious Winner” at the 35th annual Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) Competition organized by the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP).
This year, 14,108 teams from 17 countries and regions participated in the competition. Colby’s first team, consisting of Allen Ma ’21, Huan Bui ’21, and Schu He ’21, submitted a model on the potential ecological impact of introducing dragons to the Earth. The second team, made up of Danny Farr ’21 and Chris Zhu ’22, developed a model on the spread of opioid epidemic. Overall, only six percent of the teams were awarded the title of “Meritorious Winner,” placing Colby in the top eight percent of teams worldwide.
“MCM is the world’s largest team-based, international contest for undergraduate college and secondary school students,” according to COMAP’s website. The competition “challenges teams of students to clarify, analyze, and propose solutions to open-ended problems.”
