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

for GSUMC 2005!
