Abstract

This project is a solution to an ongoing time management and accurate assigning problem. A local middle school has a day every year for presentation, called “I Love Math Day”. Every student ranks the speakers he/she would like to hear. In the past, it took a person about nineteen hours to assign students to their sessions, and students complained about being assigned to sessions that were not on their list of choices. Our program was used to produce the schedule this year. It computed the schedules in less than 1 second. In the resulting schedules, 47% of the students were awarded all of their top 3 selections, and 92% of the students were awarded at least 2 of their 3 top choices. All the students were awarded at least one of their top 3 choices. Madeline Udowa built the optimization program and Robert Holt created the web interface.
