The mathematical modeling field is more than just math. It is an open-ended research subject where no definite answers exist for any problem. Thinking creatively and out-of-the-box are fundamental to successfully solving issues. Mathematical modeling enables one to connect different fields of studies together including, but not limited to, statistics, algebra, calculus, matrices, programming, and scientific writing. This vast integration of subjects opens up new opportunities and discoveries.
AoCMM is a non-profit organization that, in short, strives to educate determined individuals on the importance and applicability of mathematical and computational modeling. To expand, however, our intentions first lie with the fact that the world is full of complicated and often devastating issues. Whether these include the volatile spread of disease or locating the whereabouts of criminals, mathematical and computational modeling has its place in soundly solving real problems. Next, by recognizing the potential of modeling situations, we desire to spread more information and knowledge about mathematical and computational analysis to the general public. If more people around the globe understood the importance of mathematics to our lives or knew how to apply mathematics using data analysis, then many of our world’s problems can be efficiently and effectively solved. Ultimately, we here at AoCMM strive for more knowledge to better the world and therefore, we have created a competition both equally challenging and rewarding for those who are interested to test and expand their research experience with math modeling.
We first started AoCMM in hopes of easily providing resources and knowledge to interested students from around the world. Soon, we realized that the best way for people to learn and improve was to present them real experience. As a result, our reasons for stating the AoCMM are to first, spread the importance of mathematical and computational modeling, and second, test the knowledge of competitors in hopes that they will one day benefit the world.
As a non-profit organization, we depend on generous donations from math modeling enthusiasts such as yourself. Please feel free to contact us for donations or sponsorships! Our financial reports will be published annually after the competition ends.
