Abstract

In January 2016, Coventry University’s sigma Mathematics Support Centre (MSC) funded three students for MCM, a multi-day mathematics competition held annually in the USA. This is organised by the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) and sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) and the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS). In this article the team leader and advisor reflect on their experience.
