New Jersey Section Hosts Undergraduate Conference

The New Jersey Section of MAA hosted the first-annual Garden State Undergraduate Mathematics Conference (GSUMC) on March 27, 2004 at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, which was held jointly with its spring meeting and funded in part by MAA-NSF-RUMC Grant DMS-0241090. The approximately 100 students in attendance participated in many activities: student talks and posters presentations, the New Jersey Undergraduate Mathematics Competition (NJUMC), workshops discussing graduate school and careers in industry and K-12 education, and the giving away of many door prizes. Keynote speaker Professor John H. Conway from Princeton University capped off the Conference with a marvelous talk enjoyed by all. Over 20 teams from 12 schools participated in NJUMC, with the University of Scranton, PA, taking home the prize for first-place. Complete results of the Competition, including photos and highlights from the Conference, are available at: http://www.rowan.edu/mars/depts/math/maa-nj/gsumc.html. Watch out for GSUMC 2005!
