Moody's Mega Math Challenge, a mathematical modeling contest for high school juniors and seniors, allows students to gain the experience of working in teams to tackle a real-world problem under time and resource constraints akin to those faced by industrial applied mathematicians.

Team #7867, comprised of five Montclair High School students, was asked to analyze data and propose a solution to this year's contest question involving car-sharing.

Of the 1,084 papers submitted in this year's Moody's Mega Math Challenge, the Montclair team's solution was selected as honorable mention. Only 8.3% of the submitted papers were selected for recognition. The judges gave the team strong feedback stating "overall, their report reflected good work with great ideas and analysis. It was a pleasure to read."

According to advisor, Dana Rubin, "This was an awesome team assembled by captain Jeremy Stepansky. Their unique strengths, which complement each other, were a critical success factor in this competition. We will certainly miss Nate, Andreas, and Allen as they go off to study at Princeton, Cornell, and Harvard, respectively, as they have contributed much to the success of extracurricular math at Montclair High School."
