# Math Modeling for Undergraduate Students

The Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications (COMAP), hosts an annual mathematical modeling contest for undergraduate students known as the Mathematical Challenge in Modeling (MCM). A list of problems and results can be found here.

# Resources for Undergraduate Students

### State Apportionment Lesson Plans and Task

Version: 1.0

Three secondary teachers and a mathematics education researcher planned two lessons and revised them through lesson study. The teachers adapted the State Apportionment Task from the Mathematical Modeling Handbook (Sanfratello, 2012).

### Neighborhood Fences and Gates

Version: 1.0

This classroom modeling project targets the competency of proposing functions that meet certain properties and features, which is part of many modeling processes. It is suitable for high school or undergraduate students. Prerequisite: Algebra.

### Pain Medication Treatment Modeling Project

Version: 1.0

This classroom modeling project applies mathematical techniques to solve a problem related to drug dosage patterns. Suitable for high school or undergraduate students. Prerequisite: Calculus I.

: Exploring Geoscience Methods was an excellent capstone experience for Elementary Education Majors. The class I used this module with was 24 students of various backgrounds and academic preparation. I introduced this exercise as a capstone in the last th
