Competition Skill Building


The High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM) was designed to provide students with the opportunity to work as team members in a contest that will stimulate and improve their problem solving and writing skills. This competition takes place with your teams-consisting of up to four students-working on a real-world problem during the 11 day contest period.

Teams are allowed to work on the contest problem at any available facility and then submit their Solution Papers to COMAP for centralized judging. We want to encourage you and your students to form a team(s) from your school. 

The 23rd Annual High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM)® will be held on November 4-17, 2020.

The first step in the registration process is payment of the $100 registration fee per team. We accept payment via Mastercard or Visa, and payment must be made via our secure web site. We regret that we are not able to accept other forms of payment.

To participate in HiMCM a team must be sponsored by a faculty advisor from that school. The registration process must be completed by the advisor.

There are several procedures that a team's advisor must go through at various times before, during, and after the contest. Please read these instructions carefully and be sure to complete all the steps involved. It is the advisor's responsibility to make sure that teams are correctly registered and that all steps required for participation in HiMCM are completed.
