The International Mathematical Modeling Challenge asks students to work collaboratively on a mathematical task related to the real world. Here, Ross Turner, who leads Australia’s involvement in the challenge, describes this year’s task.
This year’s International Mathematical Modeling Challenge (IMMC) required students to measure and choose the ‘best hospital’. Here, Ross Turner explores how teams from Australia approached the task.
In the final instalment of our series on the International Mathematical Modelling Challenge, Ross Turner outlines the mathematical modelling framework and provides some practical advice on approaching the ‘jet lag’ problem set for the 2017 challenge.
