The Grauer School’s Mathematical Modeling Team wins Meritorious Recognition

A team of students at The Grauer School in Encinitas competed in the 20th annual High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM), and the team recently received a Meritorious recognition for their entry. In this competition, high school teams from around the world are given 36 hours to create a solution to a mathematical problem of real-world significance. Students are judged on the mathematical content of their solution, as well as their effectiveness in convincing the judges that their solution is optimal.

Grauer seniors Nick Gardner, Kate Matthews, Pete Miller, and junior Bennett Parker started preparing for the competition by studying winning solutions from past years....
