SCUDEM III 2018 Challenge Results

We place here the full statements of the problems in black box Download pdf and the additional feature for each problem used in SCUDEM III 2018 as well as all the student teams' Executive Summaries and Presentations  from Competition Saturday, 27 October 2018, held at local sites in the United States, Cameroon, and India. They can be found in the Supporting Document tab.

View the SCUDEM III 2018 video of students sharing  their enthusiasm for SCUDEM from the local competition site at University of Massachusetts, Amherst MA USA. You can also watch the Clackamas Community College team from Oregon City OR USA describe how they went about the selection and working of their problem. Videos of students discussing the personal growth in SCUDEM from SCUDEM I 2017 and SCUDEM II 2018 are also available. After watching these videos you will say, "Sign us up!"  Just view it!

SCUDEM III 2018 - Author Commentary on Problems and Submissions is available for SCUDEM III 2018 from the problem author, Dr. Kelly Black, of the Department of Mathematics, University of Georgia, Athens GA USA.

We have also posted Commentary and Overview on the Problems for SCUDEM II 2018 from the problem author, Dr. Kelly Black, of the Department of Mathematics, University of Georgia, Athens GA USA, 

Further good reading for students and coaches can be found in the posted posted Commentary and Overview on the Problems for SCUDEM I 2017 from the problem author, Dr. Kelly Black, of the Department of Mathematics, University of Georgia, Athens GA USA.

For the enjoyment of you, your students, and your colleagues we have posted the student SCUDEM III 2018 MathBowl for you to try.  Give yourself and your students a challenge.   

We have posted the presentation material used in the SCUDEM III 2018 Faculty Development Workshop. These may be used locally or as resources for someone wishing to learn about the SIMIODE site
