All parents of students participating in the contest must sign a?Parental/Guardian Authorization Form?making their child's work available (with confidentiality assurance) for use in example and training materials for HiMCM professional development activities.

The relevant issue is one of intent: each team of students is expected to develop all of its substantive analysis without the help of others.

Preparing and Submitting a Solution Paper


1.???? The Summary Sheet

Type a summary of the teams solution on the Summary Sheet?which should be included as the first page of your electronic Solution Paper.
The summary is a very important part of your HiMCM paper. The judges place considerable weight on the summary, and winning papers are sometimes distinguished from other papers based on the quality of the summary. To write a good summary, imagine that a reader may choose whether to read the body of the paper based on your summary. Thus, a summary should clearly describe your approach to the problem and, most prominently, what your most important conclusions were. The summary should inspire a reader to learn the details of your work. Your concise presentation of the summary should inspire a reader to learn the details of your work. Summaries that are mere restatements of the contest problem, or are a cut-and-paste boilerplate from the Introduction are generally considered to be weak.

将参赛队的论文摘要打印在摘要页上,并制作一份拷贝。摘要是你的HiMCM 论文中非常重要的部分,评审中它占有很大的权重。有的时候,获奖论文区别于其它论文的关键就在于摘要的质量。要写好摘要部分,设想读者要通过摘要决定是否要阅读论文的其他部分。因此,一个摘要应该清楚的描述你解决问题的方法,最重要的是,你的主要结论。摘要应该能够激发读者来了解你的工作细节。 简明扼要的摘要能够激发读者了解你的工作的细节。摘要不要只是简单的重述比赛问题,不要简单地剪切粘贴你的前言的模版,这种摘要不会得到高的评价。
