In this contest, sponsored by MathWorks and organized by SIAM, high school students in the US and sixth form students in England and Wales experience what it’s like to work as a team to tackle a real-world problem under time and resource constraints, akin to those faced by professional mathematicians working in industry. The Challenge awards $100,000 in scholarships and is entirely Internet-based with no registration or participation fees. Learn more.

This freely downloadable report was funded by the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) and SIAM, with cooperation of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and support from MathWorks Math Modeling Challenge. The report helps the modeling process to be understood as part of STEM studies and research, and taught as a basic tool for problem solving and logical thinking. Learn more.
NSF is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense..." NSF is the only federal agency whose mission includes support for all fields of fundamental science and engineering, except for medical sciences. Funding from NSF has strengthened many SIAM programs throughout the decades, including our conferences, awareness initiatives, and more. Learn more.
