The Challenge


Paper do’s and don’ts


What makes this contest different from others? A lot! This is a math modeling contest – that means you need to work on a problem using a multi-step process infused with math techniques from your particular toolbox of skills. Everything you need to get started is online and free. There are big prizes and great recognition for solid efforts. The process for selecting winners is rigorous and intense.  Learn more about all aspects of the M3 Challenge via the tabs on this page.
