The 36th Annual Mathematics Competition for Grades 7, 8 and 9 will take place at UNB on Thursday, May 3, 2018.

About 1,200 New Brunswick students will travel to the Fredericton and Saint John campuses of the University of New Brunswick, as well as the Moncton, Edmundston and Shippagan campuses of l’Université de Moncton, to write a multiple-choice competition.

The competition can be written in either English or French and will take place in the late morning. District and provincial winners will be announced in the afternoon.

The awards presentation for UNB Fredericton will take place at 3:30 p.m. in the Cafeteria of the Student Union Building (SUB). On UNB Saint John's campus, the ceremony will be held at 3:10 p.m. in the Ganong Hall Lecture Theatre.  

Throughout the day, faculty presentations, demonstrations and tours will take place for competing students. A full program of events for the both campuses is available on the competition website.

Thursday also marks the start of the 18th annual UNB-Canadian Math Society Math Camp, a three-day mathematics enrichment camp for New Brunswick high school students Grades 10 and 11, in Fredericton.

Invitations to the UNB-CMS Math Camp are awarded to students on the basis of their success in the New Brunswick Mathematics Competition for Grade 9 or the Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge. Participants will stay in UNB residences, work on challenging problems, attend various lectures and share social times together.
