Blundon Seminar Math Camp

May 19, 2021 - May 21, 2021

The Blundon Seminar is an annual (since 1982) three-day math
camp for senior high school students from Newfoundland who are
interested in mathematics and demonstrate consistently good
performance in mathematics competitions. Participation in the math
camp is by invitation only based on the results of preceding Blundon,
COMC, Euclid, Fermat, and Cayley contests. During the seminar the
students attend two one-hour talks given by professors from MUN on
various mathematical topics and applications in science and
engineering. There are several problem solving sessions as well as
other activities such as Mathletics and Papers Chase. The winner of
Blundon Contest is presented with the Blundon Shield, and the
winners of other contests are also presented with money and book
prizes. The awards for the best results in mathematics competitions
are presented during the banquet, where a collective photo is taken
as well.
