The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) student chapter's annual Mathematical Contest in Modeling for undergraduates was featured recently on the SIAM blog. Check out the post for details on our local competition and the international modeling competition. This post also contains a sample problem from the local competition called Say It Ain’t Snow, where students model the optimal snow plowing strategy for neighborhoods with streets of varying regularity, as shown.  To find out more go to the Siam blog post.
