The High School Math Department is happy to share that two ASV teams have successfully advanced from the national phase of the International Mathematical Modeling Challenge (IMMC).
Our students have achieved two out of the three available team spots in the next challenge, the last step before competing in the international finals. The IMMC revision team led by Dr. Irene Ferrando (Math Professor at the University of Valencia) congratulated our students for their great work on this national stage, which consisted in developing a mathematical model to optimize the electrical demand in our school campus.
IMMC is a mathematical challenge addressed to high school students interested in the use of mathematics to solve real-life problems. They are encouraged to analyze a problem and present solutions based on mathematical models. By participating in these types of activities, students implement practical mathematical skills connected to ASV’s learning goals of applying mathematical principles in a novel situation, interpreting the information of a given problem, and representing and interpreting real-life situations using mathematical notation.
This is the second time an ASV team has qualified for the international challenge as our first ASV team achieved this goal in 2022.
The 2023 teams will receive time to analyze the new math challenge and prepare their answer during an intense two-day workshop later in March 2023.
Congratulations to the students who are members of these two teams, as well as to their ASV math teachers.
