Outreach Activities

The Mathematics and Statistics department at UNB has a long and proud history of reaching out to the wider community and improving mathematics education and literacy in New Brunswick.

Our outreach activities encompass grade 7 students all the way up to high school mathematics teachers.

New Brunswick Mathematics Competition

In cooperation with the Faculty of Science and the School of Engineering of l’Université de Moncton, this competition is held in May every year, for students of Grades 7 to 9 from across the province.

While students wait for their papers to be graded, they are entertained by talks and demonstrations that tell them about various interesting applications of mathematics to the real world. 

University of New Brunswick/Canadian Mathematical Society (UNB–CMS) Camp

This camp is for students from Grades 10 and 11 and starts on the same day as the annual New Brunswick Math Competition.

The camp is by invitation with selection based primarily on performance in the competition.

Students will:

  • Work on fun and challenging math problems 
  • Hear talks about mathematics
  • Get to know UNB profs
  • Live in residence for the weekend

Calculus Challenge Exam

This exam is held in early June every year and is open to students who are registered or have completed a high school calculus course. High scores earn students credit for MATH 1003: Introduction to Calculus 1.

Math Competition Marking Workshop 

This workshop is for high school teachers and is usually held on a Friday in April. Teachers and UNB faculty work together to mark competition papers prepared by the University of Waterloo for high school students across the country.
