Abstract
A total of 2,254 teams of undergraduates from hundreds of institutions and departments in 14 countries, spent a weekend in February working on applied mathematicsproblems inthe 26thMathematicalContest inModeling(MCM)!R . The 2010MCMbegan at 8:00 P.M. EST on Thursday, February 18, and ended at 8:00 P.M. EST on Monday, February 22. During that time, teams of up to three undergraduates researched, modeled, and submitted a solution to one of two open-ended modeling problems. Students registered, obtained contest materials, downloaded the problem and data, and entered completion data through COMAP’s MCM Website. After a weekend of hard work, solution papers were sent to COMAP on Monday. Two of the top papers appear in this issue of The UMAP Journal, together with commentaries.
