The Department of Mathematics & Statistics supports the following competitions: 

College-Level: Mathematical Contest in Modeling

The MCM is an international contest that challenges teams of students to clarify, analyze, and propose solutions to open-ended problems. Teams of 3 students prepare a carefully written solution to one of three problems over the course of a weekend in the spring semester. Solutions are submitted to the Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications (COMAP) for judging. 

This spring the competition is scheduled for the weekend of February 8, 2018. For more information, contact Dr. Lisa Holden (holdenl@nku.edu) or Dr. Mike Waters (watersm1@nku.edu).
