Dear students and coaches,
The M3 Challenge registration deadline is about six weeks away, and the Challenge itself is not far behind. Read on for tips to help you register and prepare.

For those who have not yet registered or plan to register a second team, there is still time. Registration must be completed by each team’s teacher-coach at or before 8:00 p.m. EST on Friday, February 28, 2014.

Register now at http://m3challenge.siam.org/participate/<http://siam.us3.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=ab1736c99674e9e40595b9b8a&id=9b7dfce8a3&e=4b64c5c52d>.

Once you’ve registered, here are some tips for team preparation:

  1.  Review the rules and guidelines – Don’t make the mistake of skipping this critical step. It only takes 10 minutes to familiarize yourself with the solution paper guidelines and other rules. Do so by going to: http://m3challenge.siam.org/participate/rules/<http://siam.us3.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=ab1736c99674e9e40595b9b8a&id=17463bf386&e=4b64c5c52d>.

  1.  Check out the sample problems – A variety of math modeling problems, plus all previous M3 Challenge problems and their winning solution papers, are available at: http://m3challenge.siam.org/problem/sampleProblems.php<http://siam.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=ab1736c99674e9e40595b9b8a&id=390d60f701&e=4b64c5c52d>.

  1.  Read the judge perspectives – Judge perspectives provide great insight into what the judges will be looking for in your solution paper. A list of judge perspectives from each challenge follow the information about the judging process at: http://m3challenge.siam.org/problem/judging/<http://siam.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=ab1736c99674e9e40595b9b8a&id=61c6fcc650&e=4b64c5c52d>.

  1.  Submit parental/guardian consent – Guardians of participating students must submit consent online (preferred) or send in a hard copy of the consent form via fax, email, or mail. Students can log in to the M3 Challenge site with their parents to read and acknowledge their consent via electronic signature. Every effort should be made to submit consents by 8:00 p.m. EST on Friday, February 28, 2013.

  1.  Practice download/upload when you go to the login page – Make sure you understand how this process works well before Challenge day.

  1.  Pay attention to M3 Challenge emails – They contain important deadlines and information about the Challenge. It’s also advisable to approve m3challenge at siam.org<mailto:m3challenge at siam.org> and m3mailer at siam.org<mailto:m3mailer at siam.org> as senders so that messages from these addresses do not get caught in your spam filter.

  1.  Plan your Challenge day – Decide in advance where your team will work and have a back-up location in case there is a glitch. Plan in advance for food, computer and Internet access, and anything else you and your teammates will need to stay on track and be successful!
Most importantly, enjoy the experience! The M3 Challenge is a unique competition designed to help you see how powerful applied mathematics can be. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Kind regards,
M3 Challenge Headquarters
