The Mathematical Contest in Modeling, Feb 10-14, 2011, is a contest that occurs over a long weekend, and contestants team up in groups of three. Teams use their mathematical skills to tackle a given real-life problem and then communicate their model in a written report. Grinnell teams will be organized by Royce Wolf; sign up by February 5 at Noon. Contact him for more information, or see http://www.comap.com/undergraduate/contests/mcm/.
