Congratulation Indonesian teams
for the achievement in International Mathematical Modeling Challenge:
Meritorious - St. Angela Bandung
Honorable Mention - Cita Hati Christian School Surabaya
Dear St. Angela team,
Congratulations on your team’s success! Your team has been chosen as an international round Outstanding/Meritorious Winner of the 4th Annual International Mathematical Modeling Challenge (IM²C 2018). It is our great pleasure to invite you and your team to the awards ceremony being held in association with the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) in Melbourne, Australia August 16–19, 2018. Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) and NeoUnion ESC Organization will cover the costs of travel, lodging and meals, and insurance.
The purpose of the InaM2C is to promote the teaching of mathematical modeling and applications at secondary school in Indonesia. It is based on the firm belief that students and teachers need to experience the power of mathematics to help better understand, analyze and solve real world problems outside of mathematics itself, and to do so in realistic contexts. The Challenge has been established in the spirit of promoting educational change.
One important way to influence secondary school culture, and teaching and learning practices, is to institute a high-level, prestigious new secondary school contest.
This is a true team competition, held over six days with students able to use any inanimate resources. Real problems require a mix of different kinds of mathematics for their analysis and solution. Real problems take time and teamwork. The InaM2C provides students with a deeper experience both of how mathematics can explain our world and what working with mathematics looks like.
We are inviting schools to prepare teams of up to four students with one teacher. The contest will be held in the third week of October.
Papers will be judged and winners announced in November . Papers will be designated as Outstanding, Meritorious, Honorable Mention, and Successful Participant with appropriate plaques and certificates given in the name of students their advisor and their schools. Outstanding teams can join the IM2C (International Mathematical Modeling Challenge) next year.
