Blundon Seminar Math Camp
May 16, 2018 - May 18, 2018
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 such as Blundon, COMC, Euclid, Fermat, and Cayley contests. Each year we invite about 35-50 students. 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 at the banquet. According to students’ responses collected after each camp this event is enjoyable, informative, and memorable for the majority of them.
