A team competition for high school students around Australia
The International Mathematical Modelling Challenge (IM²C) is a new team-based mathematical competition for Australian secondary students.
Operating in teams comprising up to four students from the same school, participants must work collaboratively to solve a problem (set globally) by devising and applying an original mathematical model.
Constrained to a period of five consecutive days, teams unpack the given problem, hypothesise, test, and develop a working solution, before preparing and submitting a report on their solution to the Australian judging panel. The best two solutions then progress to compete against the other participating countries on an international level.
Completely free to enter, the IM²C exists to support the real-world application of learning, build proficiency, encourage collaboration, and challenge students to use mathematics to make a real difference to the world around them.
