"We are a novice team of modeling competition. AoCMM
2016 really gave us an intriguing experience of math modeling. We think that AoCMM problems are challenging, but they are always interesting and related to our daily life. Thus, for future competitors, it is better to form a team with friends who have not only a good command and interest in mathematics or computer science, but also a wide range of knowledge. Only by understanding the context of these real world problems can competitors build models with mathematics. Real world knowledge is indispensable!

In addition, something that needs to keep in mind is that perseverance is very important. Real world problems are inevitably complex. Having no ideas or disagreements among group members is really common. Be patient! Every cloud has a silver lining. As long as you are mathematically capable enough, excellent solutions will come after you.

Overall, AoCMM is wonderful. We really learn a lot from the competition. We strongly recommend AoCMM to every all-round student!"

St. Mark's School, Christchurch School, China​​

Team members: 
- Yichi (Isabella) Zhang, Wenjing (Jenny) Shan, Chengze (Alan) He,  and Qiuyi (Carol) Yin
"Since AoCMM 16 is our first math modeling contest, we really didn't expect that we would win an award. The competition itself was both challenging and rewarding at the same time. When we are solving the problems together, we not only challenged ourselves but also explored our potentials as a team. AoCMM really taught us so much more than mere math. It has been a great honor for us to participate in the competition, and we are truly thankful for the committee and the judges who made all of these possible."

AoCMM 2015 Honorable Mentions

International School Manila, the Philippines

Team members: 
- Eeshan Ajmera, Mingoo Kwon, Yu Chul Lee, and Kushagra Sharma
"AoCMM's math modeling competition was a life changing experience. As a high school student, this experience was eye-opening. Prior to the participation, mathematics and coding were seemingly unrelated to real life. However, from participating we know better understand the various applications. Thus, we are extremely thankful for AoCMM for offering such an experience!

For the future teams participating, we want to emphasize the importance of being flexible. This competition is held during school work still continues, so it will be hard to manage your time. Therefore, most of your work will be done while there is time, which means that you won't have an organized schedule for when you work on the papers. By being flexible with these constraints, we believe, that we have been successful in this year's AoCMM competition.

Also, special thanks to Yu Chul for being the MVP of this team!"
