Abstract:

On February 2-6, 2006, two teams of three students each from Union College participated in the annual Mathematical Contest in Modeling.  This contest is an international competition where teams of undergraduate students work on solutions to hypothetical physical problems.  This year, the problem choices dealt with optimal sprinkler systems for irrigation and wheelchair accessibility at airports.  In this talk, one of the teams from Union will discuss their experience of participating in the contest and present their final solution.
