About the institution

Con­sor­tium for Math­e­mat­ics and Its Appli­ca­tions (COMAP) is an award-win­ning math­e­mat­ics edu­ca­tion non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion that has worked with edu­ca­tors, stu­dents, busi­ness­es, and indus­try to sup­port and cre­ate learn­ing envi­ron­ments where math­e­mat­ics is used to inves­ti­gate and mod­el real issues in our world. COMAP’s edu­ca­tion­al phi­los­o­phy cen­ters on math­e­mat­i­cal mod­el­ing: using math­e­mat­i­cal tools to explore real-world prob­lems. COMAP offers inter­na­tion­al math­e­mat­i­cal mod­el­ing con­tests oppor­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents at the mid­dle school, high school, and under­grad­u­ate lev­els to engage as teams to solve a real-world prob­lem, present their solu­tion, and earn recog­ni­tion. COMAP pro­vides tech­ni­cal assis­tance and pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment sup­port to edu­ca­tors at all lev­els. COMAP part­ners with oth­er orga­ni­za­tions and par­tic­i­pates in nation­al and inter­na­tion­al con­fer­ences with the goal of encour­ag­ing edu­ca­tors to inte­grate applied math­e­mat­ics and mod­el­ing into their classrooms.
