LTU MCS students participated in 2012 MCM
A big thank-you from the College of Arts & Sciences to the 9 students who participated in the 2012 MCM on February 9-13 (www.comap.com)! You put in enormous amounts of time and effort, and some excellent teamwork, to produce a research paper on a challenging problem, working to the last minute to polish the result. Everyone chose problem A, and all papers were different.
Four days is a short time to research a problem, model and solve it, validate the model, and write a paper, plus keep your class and work commitments. It is a credit to Lawrence Tech to have students participating in an activity at this level. We hope to know by the end of March how the papers did against the other teams from the US, China, and other countries.
A special thanks also goes to our support team this year: Dr. Bindschadler and Marilyn Wiseman in the MCS Department (and Profs Cartwright and Merscher for food delivery), the Arts and Sciences Dean’s Office (great cookies), and especially the LTU campus safety group for their help over the weekend.
