Integration Bee (Contact Dr. S. Muir)
This annual competition is like a spelling bee except contestant perform a calculus problem. There is both a high school and college division with cash prizes for the winners. For more information on the bee, click here.
This premier undergraduate math competition consists of two three-hour sittings separated by a lunch break. Each competitor attempts to solve twelve problems, which can typically be solved with only basic knowledge of college mathematics but which require extensive creative thinking.
The Garden State Undergraduate Mathematics Conference (GSUMC) is a one-day meeting for undergraduate students that includes a mathematics competition (NJUMC), opportunities for students to present their research (posters and talks), as well as an engaging plenary presenation accessible to undergraduates.
Attendance at the GSUMC is free for students, but advance registration is required.
