03/03/2019. On a cloudy March morning, a group of four Honors Discrete Math Boys School Students gathered inside the Odyssey II Building at 7:00 am to participate in the M3 Mathematical Modelling Challenge. The challenge, spanning 14 consecutive hours, exhausted the wits and patience of the four students. The cold morning air slowly transitioned into the misty afternoon showers, which then evolved into the darkness of the evening. Yet, the four students remained in the same spot, dedicating tremendous brainpower into the difficult task. By 9:30 pm, the fruition was complete. A 27-page phenomenon emerged onto the TV screen, revealing itself to the students, whose grins stretched over their fatigued faces. Thus, a rewarding day was concluded.

Special thanks to Dr. Koay for providing the training, the food, and the drinks that continuously fueled our progress!
