IM2C: an inclusive and sharing community

International Mathematical Modeling Challenge (IMMC or styled as IM2C), established in 2014 in Boston, is an innovative mathematical contest in modeling for secondary school students all over the world, whose co-founders and co-sponsors are the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) and NeoUnion ESC Organization (NeoUnion). The aim of IM2C is to promote mathematical modeling education and enhance students’ core competences in mathematics, encouraging participants to explore the application of mathematical modeling in real life situations to solve problems of importance. 

IMMC in Greater China is held in Hong Kong every year. The adjudication, team selection, and recognition for IM2C in Greater China are authorized exclusively to International Mathematical Modeling Challenge Committee (Zhonghua), a non-profit organization with charity institution code 91/14657 approved by Hong Kong SAR. IM2C in this Region is an inclusive and sharing platform for secondary schools to practice mathematical modeling in promotion of teaching and learning in STEM at both local and international level by a student-centered approach.

Supported by strong academic leadership 

IMMC in Greater China is guided by the IMMC Advisory and Academic Board; problem setting, papers reviewing, teams selection and judgement will be conducted by the Expert Panel and Grand Jury of Greater China
