**Sponsoring Institution: **MathWorks and Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM)

**Type: **Math Competition

**Eligibility: **Highschool juniors and seniors (age 16-19) in England, Wales, or the U.S. 2 teams of 3-5 students and one coach per school can apply to this math competition. Home school and cyber school students are also allowed to enter.

**Application Deadline: **Teams register (free) until mid -February. Competition takes place for team’s chosen continuous 14 hour span, annually, between a Friday through Monday at the end of February.

**Highlight: **Are you a competitive mathematician with a flare for problem-solving? If this is true then the M3 maths challenge math competition is for you! Take part in a 14 hour math competition alongside 3-5 other team members and develop your ability to solve a real-world problem. As said by Albert Einstein: “Pure Mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas” and you and your team could use your mathematical skills to create a logical solution to a real-world problem in this math competition. Participants in this math competition can learn what it’s like to work as a team to solve real world problems under time and resource constraints, similar to those faced by skilled mathematicians working in industry. Compete for large prizes where winners are judged based on their presentation, solutions to each problem, and other discretionary points. Although exhausting, you can prove your dedication and commitment in this grueling challenge! Prizes are awarded to the top 37 teams. And even if you don’t win one of the main prizes, additional prizes are awarded to teams for their skilled and creative use of programming to analyze and solve the problem.
