Carthage students complete math challenge and receive awards
Two teams of Carthage students completed the SCUDEM challenge in differential equations modeling this fall.
Caitlyn Feldpausch ’23 and Cephas Storm ’22 worked with a student at the École des Sciences de Byimana in Rwanda to study a “Bird Wheel” problem (referencing a viral video). Their presentation of their solution earned an “Outstanding” rating.
Felicity Daniels ’21 and Alec Digirolamo ’21 worked with a student from Purdue University to study “Oil Decay,” a problem relating to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Their presentation of their solution earned a “Meritorious” rating.
More information on the teams’ problems and the challenge format can be found on the SCUDEM website. Any student with experience in differential equations is welcome to participate next year.
