ab: From the text: The purpose of the $\text{IM}^2\text{C}$ is to promote the
teaching of mathematical modeling and applications at all educational
levels for all students. It is based on the firm belief that students
and teachers need to experience the underlying? power of mathematics to
help better understand, analyze and solve real world problems outside
of mathematics itself ‒ and to do so in realistic contexts. The
Challenge has been established in the spirit of promoting educational
change. The article also contains the two submitted models on the 2015
$\text{IM}^2\text{C}$ problem delivered by the outstanding team from
Raffles Girls’ School (Secondary) which is a good example for using
visualizations. The 2015 $\text{IM}^2\text{C}$ Problem (Movie
Scheduling): A great deal of preparation must take place before a movie
can be filmed. Important sets and scenes need to be identified,
resource needs must be calculated, and schedules must be arranged. The
issue of the schedule is the focus of the modeling activities. A large
studio has contacted your firm, and they wish to have a model to allow
for scheduling a movie. You should provide examples and test cases to
convince the movie executives that your model is effective viable? and
robust.
