$150,000 in scholarships available through the Moody’s Mega Math (M3) Challenge

Moody's Mega Math ChallengeLove math? Moody’s Mega Math (M3) Challenge is a mathematical modeling contest for high school juniors and seniors. Through participation, students 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 is sponsored by The Moody’s Foundation and organized by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) and awards $150,000 in scholarships each year. Up to two teams of three to five high school students from each school are eligible to participate. The problem is completely unknown to them until they login on their selected Challenge day. Solutions are judged on the approach and methods used and the creativity displayed in problem-solving and math-modeling.

Teams must register by the February 23, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. EST deadline. The teacher-coach registers the school information and inputs team members’ information.  For more information, please visit Moody’s Mega Math Challenge.
