Recently, China Undergraduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling(CUMCM) has revealed its winner list. Qingdao Agricultural University(QAU), for the second time, made a new historic breakthrough in this largest foundational academic contest among universities and colleges nationwide. Under the instruction of their academic advisor, Chen Xuerong, a teacher from the School of Sciences and Information Science of QAU, Wang Yanyan, Yu Xue and Chi Fang submitted their paper titled On the Pricing Optimization for Making Money by Photographing and won the first prize, and this is the first time that our university has won the first prize in this contest, a class A contest among national college students .

CUMCM, initiated in 1992, is a class A contest on science and also the largest mathematical contest in modeling in the whole world. In the 2017-term of this competition, up to110 thousand students of a total of 36375 teams from 1418 universities and colleges entered for the contest. In the contest, QAU won the National First Prize as well as 3 first prizes, 4 second prizes and 3 third prizes of provincial level.

Our university has selected altogether 40 teams for this year’s contest. The team from School of Sciences and Information Science, under the careful direction of their academic supervisors during the summer training, successfully roared into the finals after a series of fierce competitions based on their sound theoretical knowledge, abundant experience and strong modeling ability, and finally stood out from the 65 recommendations submitted by Shandong province to the National Organizing Committee and made it to National First Prize. It is reported that the number of first-prize winners accounts for less than 1% of the total participants.

Based on the academic advisor team for the mathematical modeling contest, School of Sciences and Information Science has made full use of its discipline advantages to set up special mathematic modeling laboratories and establish a specialized and scientific contest training system. The excellent achievement this time is the best reward for the team and the group of teachers, and is also a result of the long-lasting attention that the School has been paying to the cultivation of application-oriented, compound and innovative talents, which is an ultimate goal of the university. Meanwhile, the prize laid a solid foundation for the college to enhance the study-style construction and foster an ever-deeper atmosphere of innovation and entrepreneurship.
